Pasqualoni was the longtime Syracuse head coach and went 107-59-1 from 1991-2004. The Orangemen were a consistently strong program under his leadership. He went to the NFL after parting ways with Syracuse, went back to college at UConn for an unsuccessful stint, and then he went back to being a defensive line coach at college and the NFL. He’s been a defensive line coach at BC since 2016.
Pasqualoni hired Patricia out of Amherst and helped him land in New England, according to MLive.com. He could end up as a defensive coordinator for the team.
