The Patriots continue to work on rounding out their coaching staff for 2019 with the addition of Youngstown State offensive line coach Carmen Bricillo, according to the Youngstown (Ohio) Vindicator.

Bricillo, who has been on the Youngstown State staff for 10 seasons, is expected to work under Patriots offensive line coach Dante Scarnecchia.

Youngstown State athletic director Ron Strollo would not confirm or deny that Bricillo was bound for New England.

Additionally, Atif Austin, who joined the Patriots as a coaching assistant last May, is leaving Foxborough to accept a job as the running backs coach at Northern Illinois, according to the Daily Chronicle of Dekalb County.
