New England Patriots legend and Corridor of Fame cornerback Ty Regulation thinks Patriots linebackers coach Jerod Mayo deserves an opportunity to exchange Invoice Belichick if crew proprietor Robert Kraft components methods with the six-time Tremendous Bowl champion head coach this winter.
“I wish to see Jerod Mayo get a possibility,” Regulation stated throughout a Tuesday look on WEEI’s “The Greg Hill Present,” as shared by Mike Kadlick of Audacy. “As a result of I feel he has respect from, particularly round right here, he has respect from gamers as a former participant, which you do not have plenty of former gamers [coaching].”
Mayo first became New England’s inside linebackers coach in 2019 and has been thought of a favorite to finally succeed Belichick since at the very least final offseason. That, nonetheless, was earlier than ESPN’s Dan Graziano and Boston Sports activities Journal founder/editorial director Greg A. Bedard revealed final week that it’s miles from a positive factor that Kraft already has Mayo penciled in for the gig.
In the meantime, Regulation in contrast New England’s state of affairs to how Las Vegas Raiders interim head coach Antonio Pierce has reportedly grow to be a reputable candidate to earn the full-time job with that group following this season.
“I feel that is a direct results of him with the ability to relate to the gamers in a sure approach,” Regulation stated about Pierce. “And he is acquired these boys taking part in. He performed that place, that management place, as a linebacker. You might have the identical factor with Jerod Mayo. He is been teaching underneath Invoice Belichick.
