RPT: Scarnecchia back as Patriots' offensive line coach

The New England Patriots' offensive line just got better.

According to ESPN's Adam Caplan, veteran assistant Dante Scarnecchia agreed to come out of retirement and return to his post as the Patriots' offensive line coach.

Via ESPN Boston:
Scarnecchia had retired following the 2013 season after 32 years in the NFL, 30 of which came in New England (1982-88; 1991-2013). He coached the offensive line for his final 15 seasons in New England, and has remained around the team since his retirement, primarily helping with evaluations of college offensive linemen entering the NFL.
At the end of the 2015 season, New England didn't renew the contract of Dave DeGuglielmo, who took over for Scarnecchia in 2014.
