Bill Belichick has yet another coach to replace.

According to The Daily Chronicle in Illinois, Northern Illinois has hired former Patriots coaching assistant Atif Austin as its running backs coach. Austin spent the 2018 season in New England as a coaching assistant and was one of the names in the mix for a promotion with all the positional coaches leaving for other teams.

Austin has also changed his Twitter account to have a Northern Illinois banner.

While Austin was just a coaching assistant, it just adds to the list of coaching turnover that has already occurred this offseason.
