Dave DeGuglielmo (born July 15, 1968, in Cambridge, Massachusetts) is the current American football offensive line coach for the New England Patriots of the National Football League.

Early years[edit]

DeGuglielmo was born in Cambridge, Massachusetts, and was raised in Lexington, Massachusetts.[1]

Playing career[edit]

DeGuglielmo was a four-year letterman at Boston University from 1987 to 1990.[2] Playing both guard and center, DeGuglielmo was a first-team All-New England selection as well as a two-time Academic All-Yankee Conference selection.[2]

Coaching career[edit]

After his playing career ended, DeGuglielmo started off his coaching career at Boston College as a graduate assistant, then later as the offensive line coach until 1995. He later coached the offensive line at his alma mater, Boston University, until 1999 before taking a similar job at South Carolina. In 2004, he joined the New York Giants staff. In his tenure, the Giants won a Super Bowl (XLII)and set a franchise record for rushing yards (2,518) and yards per carry (5.0) in 2008.[3] Afterwards, he held the same job for the Miami Dolphins where in 2011 the Dolphins rushed for 1,987 in what was also Reggie Bush's first 1,000 yard season. DeGuglielmo was named the New York Jets' offensive line coach on January 24, 2012.[4] He was fired on February 5, 2013.[5]

On January 22, 2014, he was hired to be the New England Patriots offensive line coach to replace Dante Scarnecchia, who retired after 44 years in the NFL and 30 years with the Patriots. DeGuglielmo had been hired by the University of Maryland to serve as offensive line coach six days prior to the Patriots' announcement.[6]
