FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) -- The New England Patriots have hired former Tennessee Titans general manager Floyd Reese as part of a restructuring of the team's front office.
The team also announced Tuesday that Nick Caserio will manage the daily operations of the personnel department following the departure of vice president of player personnel Scott Pioli. Caserio became director of player personnel a year ago.
Reese will have the title of senior football advisor in New England and his responsibilities will include contracts.
Reese became executive vice president and general manager of the Houston Oilers in 1990, moving with the franchise to Tennessee and
holding that title through the 2006 season. Pioli resigned from the Patriots earlier in the month to become general manager of the Kansas City Chiefs.
