The former rocket scientist has done a little bit of everything since joining the Patriots in 2004. The 43-year-old served as an offensive assistant, offensive line coach, a linebackers coach, a safeties coach and took over as the defensive coordinator in 2012.

Chargers Re-sign OC & DC
On Tuesday, the Los Angeles Chargers announced they re-signed offensive coordinator Ken Whisenhunt and defensive coordinator Gus Bradley. Both coaches contract's ran out on Tuesday, but after a successful season, they were re-signed quickly.

Whisenhunt's offense finished fourth in total yards, first in passing, and 24th in rushing offense. Quarterback Philip Rivers threw only 10 interceptions and was sacked a career-low 18 times.In his first season after being fired as head coach of the Jacksonville Jaguars, Bradley's Chargers defense finished 15th in total defense, third against the pass, and 31st against the run. 

Seahawks Fire OC Darrell Bevell
According to Sports Radio KJR's Curtis Crabtree, the Seattle Seahawks have fired offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell. Bevell was the Seahawks' OC for seven of head coach Pete Carroll's eight seasons in Seattle.

Whoever the next OC is will get MVP candidate quarterback Russell Wilson, but not much else to work with. Seattle has one of the worst offensive lines in the NFL, no running game, and tight end Jimmy Graham is a free agent.
