Patriots assistant quarterbacks coach Jerry Schuplinski is returning in 2018, ESPN's Mike Reiss reports.
More continuity on Patriots’ staff: Assistant QBs coach Jerry Schuplinski is returning to the team in 2018, per sources. Helped develop Jimmy Garoppolo and Jacoby Brissett. Will play important role in helping develop another young QB.— Mike Reiss (@MikeReiss) February 12, 2018
Schuplinski was reportedly going to leave with offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels to join McDaniels' staff with the Indianapolis Colts before McDaniels reversed himself on taking the Indy head coaching job.
A college teammate of McDaniels, whose official title is offensive coordinator/QB coach, and Patriots personnel director Nick Caserio at John Carroll College in Ohio, Schuplinski will be in his third season in his current position in 2018. He joined Bill Belichick's staff as a coaching assistant 2013.
