O'Brien has been an offensive assistant with the New England Patriots since the 2007 season. In 2008, O'Brien served as the Patriots wide receivers coach before moving to be their quarterbacks coach from 2009 to 2010. In the 2011 NFL season, O'Brien took over as the Patriots offensive coordinator, calling plays for one of the best offenses in the entire NFL. Prior to his work with the Patriots, O'Brien was the offensive coordinator/quarterbacks coach for two seasons at Duke. He also held offensive positions at Maryland, Georgia Tech, and Brown.
O'Brien is the fourth offensive coordinator the Jaguars have setup for an interview.
