Patriots make it official with Michael Lombardi

The Patriots announced on Thursday that former Cleveland Browns general manager Michael Lombardi will join the team as an assistant to the coaching staff.

That confirms what had been known for the past week that he had joined the Patriots following his firing in Cleveland. He had consulted with the Patriots prior to his tenure in Cleveland though, advising Patriots coach Bill Belichick on the draft.

Lombardi was spotted with Belichick and Patriots director of player personnel Nick Caserio on his way to Indianapolis for the NFL Scouting Combine.
