FOXBOROUGH, MASS. (AP) - The New England Patriots have named quarterbacks coach Bill O’Brien as their offensive coordinator.

The move Friday came after the team spent the past two seasons without an offensive coordinator, although O’Brien, who retains the quarterbacks coach title, called plays and performed many of the coordinator’s functions. The team’s last offensive coordinator was Josh McDaniels, who left after the 2008 season to become head coach of the Denver Broncos.

The Patriots also shifted Matt Patricia from linebackers coach to coach of the safeties and named Patrick Graham linebackers coach and Brian Flores a defensive assistant to head coach Bill Belichick.

The Patriots announced that Corwin Brown, who shared coaching duties for defensive backs with Josh Boyer, will not be retained.
