A former Patriot found work yesterday, as Pepper Johnson was hired by the Buffalo Bills, to be their new defensive line coach. The news was first reported by Pete Roussel of Johnson coached the defensive line and the linebackers in New England from 2001 to 2013, and his departure from Foxboro this offseason was a tough one for the team. But it is always nice to hear of a Belichick disciple landing another job in the league, and I am sure that Belichick couldn’t be happier for Johnson. Brenden Daly was hired by the Pats a couple of days ago, likely to help replace Johnson. Daly had been with the Rams for three years, coaching that ferocious defensive line down in St. Louis.

Here is a quick run down of what has happened with the Pats assistant coaches thus far here in the 2014 offseason.

Pepper Johnson (LB’s): Bills

Dante Scarnecchia (OL): Retired

George Godsey (TE’s): Houston

Obviously the Pats didn’t want to lose any of these coaches, but that is how football works, and Belichick now has to work to replace all three of them.
