5 things to know about new offensive line coach Carmen Bricillo

CARMEN-BRICILLO

Brian Daboll has hired a new offensive line coach. Carmen Bricillo, formerly of the Raiders, will take over for Bobby Johnson, who was dismissed Monday after two seasons as the Giants' offensive line coach.

Here are five things to know about Bricillo:

1. Bricillo just finished his second season as the offensive line coach with the Las Vegas Raiders. It was his 20th year of coaching, fifth at the NFL level. He spent the previous three seasons with the New England Patriots, including two years as their offensive line coach after being promoted from coaching assistant.

2. In his first season with the Raiders in 2022, despite starting seven different offensive line combinations, Bricillo's group paved the way for a rushing attack that averaged 4.81 yards per carry, the second-highest average in franchise history. Raiders rushers were also stuffed for a loss or no gain only 68 times that season, the fewest in the NFL.

3. Although they never overlapped in New England, Bricillo, like Daboll, entered the NFL coaching ranks under Bill Belichick. Bricillo also spent one season with – and then took over for – legendary offensive line coach Dante Scarnecchia, who won five Super Bowls and was inducted into the Patriots Hall of Fame.

In 2021, running back Damien Harris rushed for 15 touchdowns, the second-most in Patriots history. As a team, the Patriots recorded 24 rushing touchdowns, the third-most in franchise history. New England's 146.6 rushing yards per game in 2020 rank seventh in franchise history and was the Patriots' best rushing attack since 1983.

4. From 2010-18, Bricillo spent nine years coaching the offensive line at Youngstown State. During his time with the program, Bricillo coached 15 All-Missouri Valley Conference selections and the Penguins advanced to the 2016 NCAA FCS National Championship Game. Behind his offensive line, the offense set multiple school records during his tenure, including total yards (6,766 in 2016), yards per game (458.6 in 2011), rushing yards (3,883 in 2016), completion percentage (64.2 percent in 2011), passing yards (2,883 in 2016), passing touchdowns (27 in 2011) and points per game (36.2 in 2011).

Prior to his time at Youngstown State, Bricillo spent the 2009 season as an offensive assistant coach at Illinois, and worked at Akron as director of video services in 2006 and a coaching assistant from 2007-08. Bricillo helped with the offensive line at Illinois and worked with the tackles and tight ends as a coaching assistant at Akron.

Bricillo began his collegiate coaching career at his alma mater, Duquesne, as the offensive line coach in 2005. Bricillo saw the team post a 7-3 record and win a conference title that season, while also guiding four linemen to all-conference honors. Prior to joining the staff at Duquesne, Bricillo spent two seasons as an assistant coach at Indiana Area High School.

5. A native of Shelocta, Pa., Bricillo played center at Duquesne, earning first-team all-conference honors in 1995 and 1996 and winning two league championships, including the school's first-ever Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference title in 1995. He earned his bachelor's degree in business administration from Duquesne and his master's degree in sports science and coaching from Akron.
