Former Kansas City Chiefs offensive coordinator Brian Daboll has returned to the New England Patriots and will assist the team for the remainder of their playoff run, Patriots head coach Bill Belichick announced Monday. Daboll spent six years with Belichick in New England from 2000-2006, serving as a defensive coaching assistant and wide receivers coach before moving on to positions with the New York Jets, Miami Dolphins, Cleveland Browns, and the Chiefs.

Daboll was dropped from the Chiefs coaching staff as part of wholesale changes with the hiring of former Eagles Coach Andy Reid to take over in Kansas City.

This isn't the first time New England has brought back a former coach to help during a playoff run. Belichick brought back former offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels during last season's playoffs after McDaniels was fired as head coach of the Denver Broncos and offensive coordinator of the St. Louis Rams. McDaniels would later be re-hired as the Patriots' offensive coordinator.
