The Patriots announced that they have hired veteran NFL personnel man Floyd Reese as a senior football adviser today.

Reese, who has been working as an analyst for ESPN, was formerly the general manager of the Tennessee Titans. According to the Patriots, Reese be involved with various football-related assignments, including contracts.

In addition to the hiring of Reese, the Patriots announced that Nick Caserio, in his second season as director of player personnel, will manage the daily operations of the personnel department, continuing to work closely with Patriots head coach Bill Belichick on all personnel matters.

These moves reshape the Patriots' personnel department after vice president of player personnel Scott Pioli was hired as Kansas City Chiefs general manager.

“We consider ourselves fortunate to have the opportunity to add someone with Floyd Reese’s NFL experience and expertise to our staff,” Patriots Chairman and CEO Robert Kraft said in a statement. “Floyd will be a tremendous asset serving Coach Belichick in an advisory role.”

Belichick, in a statement, said: "Floyd and I go back a long way, practically to the beginning for both of us. He has handled as much as one person can possibly handle in this league and to a certain extent, so has Nick. In Nick and Floyd, we have two outstanding men who each bring a wealth of knowledge and flexibility to this organization. I look forward to joining with both of them and working toward the common goal of our team's improvement and success.”

More on this move to come.
