Patriots Daily: Robyn Glaser’s Role; Troy Brown to Senior Bowl

The New England Patriots held a press conference yesterday to introduce Jerod Mayo as the fifteenth head coach in franchise history. While people discussed the press conference, news dropped about another move within the organization. Phil Perry of NBCS Boston reported that Robyn Glaser has received a couple of new job titles.

Robyn Glaser is now the Executive Vice President of Football Business and Senior Advisor to the Head Coach. Based on her experience within The Kraft Group, being involved in the business side of things certainly makes sense. It is unclear exactly what her role as a senior advisor to the head coach, Jerod Mayo, would entail.

It is not known if Glaser will have any say in football personnel decisions. Her job title does not necessarily suggest that being the case. However, in Seth Wickersham’s recent ESPN article about the demise of the Patriots, he suggests plans existing that would have Jonathan Kraft handle football operations alongside Robyn Glaser if Bill Belichick was gone. Belichick is now gone, New England has yet to announce a General Manager or Head of Football Operations, and now Glaser is involved in the football side of things to some degree. Stay tuned.

Troy Brown to Coach in Senior Bowl

While Jerod Mayo works on figuring out what to do about his coaching staff, one member of that staff is heading to the Senior Bowl. Troy Brown, who was both the wide receivers coach and return specialist coach, has been named as the offensive coordinator for the American Team in the Reese’s Senior Bowl. At this point, the 2024 New England Patriots coaching staff has not been named, so it is not known if Brown will remain with the Patriots for the Jerod Mayo Era.

This will give Brown an opportunity to work with some of the top prospects in the 2024 NFL Draft. There are 16 wide receivers who have already accepted invitations. Quarterbacks in the game include Washington’s Michael Penix, Jr. and Oregon’s Bo Nix.

Last year Troy Bown and other Patriots assistant coaches were the staff in the East-West Shrine Game for the winning West team. Two prospects from that game ended up playing as New England Patriots draft picks: WR Demario Douglas and OG Atonio Mafi.
