The New England Patriots have parted ways with offensive line coach Dave DeGuglielmo, reports NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport.

The news comes one day after the Patriots’ 20–18 loss to the Denver Broncos in the AFC Championship Game, in which quarterback Tom Brady took 23 hits including four sacks.

DeGuglielmo, who spent the last two seasons with New England, worked under Rex Ryan in 2012 as the New York Jets’ offensive line coach. Before his time with the Jets, the 47-year-old served in the same position with the Miami Dolphins from 2009–11, and as the New York Giants’ assistant offensive line coach from 2004–08.
