Patriots Part Ways with Strength & Conditioning Coach Harold Nash

New England has made another major coaching change.

Two days after parting ways with offensive line coach Dave DeGuglielmo, the New England Patriots will let another one of their coaches go: according to reports by Mike Reiss and Field Yates, head strength and conditioning coach Harold Nash won't be back with the team next season.

With @FieldYates, reporting that Patriots will have change atop strength and conditioning staff in 2016, as Harold Nash won't be returning.

The 45-year old Nash joined the Patriots in 2005 as assistant strength and conditioning coach. When long-time head of the department Mike Woicik left New England after the 2010 season, Nash took over his position.

During Nash's five-year tenure as head of strength and conditioning, the Patriots have won Super Bowl XLIX and reached the AFC Championship Game each season. However, the team also suffered the third most injuries in the league over this time span, losing a grand total of 1,082 games.

If the Patriots want to promote in-house, Nash's assistant Moses Cabrera would be the logical successor. Given the rash of injuries over the past years, however, an outside hire would also not be a surprise.
