Jerry Schuplinski enters his second season as the assistant quarterbacks coach after three seasons as a coaching assistant with the Patriots. In 2016 under offensive coordinator/quarterbacks coach Josh McDaniels and Schuplinski's guidance, Patriots quarterbacks set NFL records by going 258 pass attempts to start the season without an interception, throwing just two interceptions overall and had the best touchdown to interception ratio (16.00) in a single season. Additionally in 2016, Schuplinski's early-season work with quarterbacks Jimmy Garoppolo and Jacoby Brissett helped steer the Patriots to a 3-1 record in Tom Brady's absence.
He was added to the New England Patriots coaching staff in 2013, entering the NFL after six seasons as the special teams coordinator and linebackers coach at Case Western Reserve. During his tenure at Case Western, he tutored 22 UAA-All-Conference selections. Schuplinski graduated from John Carroll in 1999 and was a college teammate of former NFL linebacker London Fletcher, Patriots director of player personnel Nick Caserio, offensive coordinator/quarterbacks coach Josh McDaniels and director of pro personnel Dave Ziegler.
He spent two seasons (2000-2001) as a graduate assistant working with running backs and special teams. After earning his Master's of Business Administration from John Carroll in 2001, he served as a head coach at Trinity High School in Garfield Heights, Ohio, from 2002-06.
Jerry and his wife, Megan, have four daughters, Macy, Bryn, Jaxi and Josy.
