Pees name Defensive Coordinator for the Patriots

Linebackers coach Dean Pees has been tapped to replace Eric Mangini as defensive coordinator. Pees, 56, has coached in college (1979-2003) as a defensive coordinator and head coach at Kent State. He has been with the Patriots for just two years.

Mangini had his first press conference yesterday as head coach for the Jets. Hopefully, for his sake, things can only go up. Meanwhile, I'd say the over-under is 5 games for next year for the Jets. Can a young coach like Mangini get his players to stick together for a season like that?

Look for previous posts on the .
