Bill Belichick will likely need to bring in a few new coaches this offseason, and it seems like one will be a semi-familar face.

According to ESPN's Mike Reiss, there's an expectation that Mick Lombardi will be one of the additions to the Patriots coaching staff. Mick is the son of Mike Lombardi, a former Patriots executive and close friend of Belichick.

For the past two seasons, Lombardi was with the Jets serving as an offensive assistant/assistant quarterbacks coach. He does have some experience in New England, as in 2011 he served as a scouting assistant and then in 2012 he was a coaching assistant working with the offense.

With Jerry Schuplinski leaving for Miami, perhaps this could be his replacement as assistant quarterbacks coach.

This will be the first of multiple new coaches joining the staff over the next several weeks.
