Patriots quarterback Mac Jones is reportedly thrilled about Bill O’Brien returning to the NFL as the team’s new offensive coordinator, according to Mark Daniels of MassLive.

After New England head coach Bill Belichick apparenty finalized the deal to bring O'Brien back Tueday, Daniels reported that a source close to Jones said the second-year signal caller was “very” excited about O’Brien coming back to New England and that he is “looking forward” to working with his new offensive coordinator, citing that their previous experience with each other. In 2021, O’Brien worked with Jones at Alabama during the pre-draft process.

O’Brien previously told reporters in Alabama that Jones helped him learn the Crimson Tide’s offense during that time.

“I had a lot of people help me, people that were here before, guys on the coaching staff, obviously Bryce [Young],” O’Brien said in 2021 ahead of the Cotton Bowl. “I’ve said before, Mac Jones, when he was working out for the draft, helped me a little bit, which was great.”
