FLOYD REESE LANDS IN NEW ENGLAND
Posted by Mike Florio on January 27, 2009, 1:52 p.m.

Former Titans Floyd Reese spent plenty of time in late 2008 campaigning for vacant and not-so-vacant G.M. jobs.

As far as anyone can tell, he didn’t get a whiff.

But with Pats V.P. of player personnel Scott Pioli leaving New England to become the new General Manager of the Chiefs, Reese got the one job for which he didn’t publicly politick.

The Patriots have announced that Reese has been hired as a “senior football adviser.” He’ll work with new director of player personnel Nick Caserio.

“We consider ourselves fortunate to have the opportunity to add someone with Floyd Reese’s NFL experience and expertise to our staff,” said Patriots Chairman and CEO Robert Kraft in a release. “Floyd will be a tremendous asset serving Coach Belichick in an advisory role.”

“Floyd and I go back a long way, practically to the beginning for both of us,” added coach Bill Belichick. “He has handled as much as one person can possibly handle in this league and to a certain extent, so has Nick. In Nick and Floyd, we have two outstanding men who each bring a wealth of knowledge and flexibility to this organization. I look forward to joining with both of them and working toward the common goal of our team’s improvement and success.”

Reese’s contract wasn’t renewed in Tennessee after the 2006 season, and he has since been working for ESPN. His effort to campaign for openings in Detroit and Kansas City were viewed in some circles as misguided but not inappropriate. However, when he began to muse publicly regarding the possibility of becoming the next G.M. of the Browns while Phil Savage still had the job, one league source opined to us that Reese had crossed the line.

It's about time, the way he marketed himself, lobbied and politiced for a job I thought nobody would ever hire him. He associated his own name with just about every open front office job for the last two years.

so instead of all those shitty jobs he could have had, he lands with the best organization in football.

Yet note how you never heard his name bandied about in regard to the Pats until he was actually hired. That's what we're starting to see here, no rumors, no advance notice, just a hire and a statement put out by the team.

At least it's nice to know that the Pats needed a personnel guy AND a former GM to replace Pioli...

When we finally get around to firing Pioli we should hire that guy. The Pats are winners.
