Good!!

Still think he is a good coach that, for whatever reason, went off the rails the last two years he was here.  Hopefully this gets him back on track.

No, but it could reduce it by the amount of income he earns with the Pats, if I remember correctly.

I am concerned that with this new success he might be tempted to gain an unhealthy amount of weight.

Very typical. Get a huge buyout, work with one of the best for peanuts and rehab your image. Wish the man well. And I can assure you if, he was as stupid as 75% of Hogville insists he is, he would not be getting any kind of a job with Bill Belichick. He failed here, it doesn't mean he can't coach. A lot of guys don't don't manage the ride up, balancing money, time demands, a very demanding job and  family. That is the reason so many good coaches are piss poor family men. Hope the guy finds the balance and makes it work.

He's technically not "coaching".  He's an assistant's "assistant".

No surprise.

I was momentarily confused when going through the comments for that article, and seeing all the high praise people had for how well Coach BB runs the show.

Then I realized... oh yeah, there's another Coach BB that is involved with the Patriots organization.

So he basically has the same job that that Kurt Anderson had before BB hired him.  That's rich.

Glad he got a job. I'm sure Jeff Long will find a job too as soon as his approach to college football of deemphasizing wins in favor of marginally higher graduation rates catches on with more and more college programs and fans. Sometimes it takes time for visionary ideas to gain acceptance.

Wouldnít be surprised to see the patriots start to go downhill, unfortunately Iíll never know if itís Brady getting older or the addition of Bielema.  Probably the addition of Bielema.

Little unclear to me exactly what his position or job title is with the Patriots from reading that. He's such a brilliant program builder though..Belichick is extremely lucky to have him in any role on their staff/s.

I doubt that he has much in the way of job duties or is getting paid very much by the Patriots. In order to get his buyout he has to find employment or present proof that he is looking for employment every 6 months. Considering its closing in on 6 months since he was fired the sole purpose of this job is to make sure he gets his buyout and at the same time force us to pay as much to him as we can.

While I mostly agree with you, I imagine the Pats won't pay him much and this was a big reason why they hired him.  If they can get him for pennies, while we make up the difference, then they get an experienced head coach for cheap.  I'm sure they do earnestly want him, though.

Sometimes the best thing for a successful person is to taste failure. It can make you desire success again. I do think he will be back as an HC at a CFB school. I don't think the NFL will give him the "mentor" part of his desire.
