Graham joins staff as coaching assistant

Posted by Mike Reiss, Globe Staff February 10, 2009 10:25 AM

The Patriots have confirmed today's Toledo Blade report that University of Toledo assistant coach Patrick Graham has resigned to accept a position with the club. The team also confirmed that the position Graham will fill is a coaching assistant.

Graham was a graduate assistant under Charlie Weis at Notre Dame in 2007-2008.

A coaching assistant is generally considered an entry-level position. The Patriots, like other clubs, sometimes promote their coaching assistants to coach specific positions in future years (e.g. Josh Boyer and defensive backs in 2009).

The club employed three coaching assistants in 2008 -- Boyer, Brian Flores, and Shane Waldron.
