It is a new era in New England. After a complete overhaul of the coaching staff and the expected transformation of the roster, the Patriots will look completely different in 2024 than they did in 2023, both on the field and on the sidelines.

Since this offseason is a critical one to kickstart the rebuild, the Patriots are trying to make sure to nail their coaching hires. Therefore, they are holding one of the most extensive searches for their offensive coordinator opening.

Patriots News: List of Offensive Coordinator Interviews Grows

According to NBCS Boston's Albert Breer, the Patriots have San Francisco 49ers passing game coordinator Klint Kubiak and the Las Vegas Raiders passing game coordinator Scott Turner on their list of candidates to be interviewed for the position.

Kubiak and Turner are the tenth and eleventh names on the list of offensive coordinator candidates interviewed by the Patriots. A few of these names like Zac Robinson, Shane Waldron, and Dan Pitcher have already been hired by other teams.

Kubiak previously worked as an offensive coordinator for the Minnesota Vikings in 2021 before joining Kyle Shanahan's staff in San Francisco in 2023. He is the son of Super Bowl-winning head coach Gary Kubiak.

Turner similarly has offensive coordinator experience with the Washington Commanders for three seasons before joining the Raiders in 2023.

It is unclear whether Turner or Kubiak will make the second round of interviews, but the Patriots are clearly not going to leave any stones unturned in their search for their next offensive coordinator.
