COACHING
Matt Patricia enters his second season as defensive coordinator and 10th year coaching in the NFL after being named defensive coordinator on May 10, 2012. Patricia spent five seasons as the Patriots' linebackers coach and one season coaching the safeties. Since moving to coach the Patriots on defense in 2006, the team has finished in the top-10 in fewest points allowed in six of his seven seasons coaching on defense. Patricia has also helped the Patriots lead the NFL in turnover differential in 2012 (+25) and 2010 (+28) and finished first in the AFC in 2011 (+17). The plus-28 turnover differential in 2010 is tied with the 2011 San Francisco 49ers for second highest single-season differential in the NFL since 1970.

Patricia joined the Patriots in 2004 as a coaching assistant and enjoyed immediate success, by helping coach the Patriots to a victory in Super Bowl XXXIX. The following season, in 2005, Patricia aided Dante Scarnecchia as assistant offensive line coach in a season which the injury-riddled running back corps combined to rush for 1,388 yards on 395 carries.

Prior to joining the Patriots, Patricia spent six seasons in the college ranks. Immediately preceding his move to the NFL, he was an offensive graduate assistant at Syracuse for three seasons. Prior to joining the Orange, he spent two seasons (1999-2000) as the defensive line coach at Amherst College. Patricia worked as an aeronautical engineer for two years before returning to coaching at Amherst in 1999. Patricia's first coaching experience came in 1996, when he served as a graduate assistant at his alma mater, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute.

PLAYING
Patricia was a standout offensive lineman at R.P.I., playing both center and guard. He helped his senior class to an overall record of 31-8 and the Engineers won three ECAC Championships during his collegiate career.

PERSONAL
Matt Patricia was born on Sept. 13, 1974 and was raised in Sherrill, N.Y. He attended Vernon-Verona-Sherrill Central School, where he lettered in football and wrestling. He earned his bachelor's degree in aeronautical engineering from R.P.I. and later earned a master's degree in education from the University of Massachusetts. Matt and his wife, Raina, were married in the summer of 2009 and have a son, Dominic.
