A social media strategist for the New York Giants is taking the team to the next level.
According to a report in the Daily Mail, former Giants defensive coordinator Matt Patricia was hired by former offensive coordinator Brian Billick to help him bring a new approach to the team’s offense.
Patricia is a former quarterback at Penn State and has spent the past few years as a defensive coordinator at the University of Miami.
Patricia has spent time at the NFL scouting combine, as well as working with some of the NFL’s top offensive coaches.
Patricia also had a brief stint as a head coach at the high school level for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
The Giants are still searching for a new head coach after the firing of Ben McAdoo last week.
The news comes as former Browns coach Rob Chudzinski, who coached the team during the 2016 season, is on the verge of landing a job in the NFL.
Chudzinski has been a prominent figure in the coaching profession for more than 20 years.
His Browns teams reached the Super Bowl five times, but lost to the Patriots in the championship game.
Chudzis offensive philosophy of the passing game, run-first offense and passing game scheme was criticized by the Browns fanbase in 2016 after the team had a 4-12 record.
In the past, the Browns have used a quarterback, wide receiver and tight end.
In 2017, the team made a trade with the Indianapolis Colts for a third-round pick, which would become the No. 1 overall pick.
