Pepper Johnson entered his 27th season in the NFL, including his 14th season on Bill Belichick’s coaching staff. Johnson has been a part of five Super Bowl championship teams, earning a pair of rings during his illustrious 13-year playing career and also contributing to three championship teams as a Patriots assistant coach. All five of his championship rings have been earned while teamed with Coach Belichick.
In 2012, Johnson returned to coaching the Patriots linebackers. Under his tutelage, Jerod Mayo and Brandon Spikes finished as the top two tacklers on the team. It was the first season since 2009 that the team’s top-two tacklers emerged from the same position. Johnson previously coached the inside linebackers from 2001-03 followed by eight seasons mentoring the defensive line. He began his coaching career with New England in 2000 as assistant linebackers coach.
Well today he was told he would not be obtained in 2014. Buffalo Bills have an opening and he could be a huge upgrade. The Bills let their linebacker coach go and have an opening. Pepper Johnson could be a great hire for Mike Pettine’s scheme that is of course if Pettine is not given a head coaching spot.
