Ron Chenoy/USA TODAY Sports

New England Patriots defensive coordinator Matt Patricia will speak at the upcoming 2017 Georgia coaching clinic, the school announced Thursday. He will be joined during the three-day event by Tampa Bay Buccaneers coach Dirk Koetter and North Dakota State coach Chris Klieman.

Patricia, in his fifth season as defensive coordinator, helped the Patriots win Super Bowl LI this past season when they finished eighth in the NFL in total defense. He also was defensive coordinator when they won the Super Bowl in 2014.

Patriots coach Bill Belichick will be speaking at the Texas coaches clinic this spring.

At Alabama, Atlanta Falcons coach Dan Quinn and Houston Texans coach Bill O’Brien are among the keynote speakers.

Coaches who attend the Georgia clinic will have the chance to observe two Georgia spring practice sessions and can take part in chalk-talk sessions with current Bulldogs coaches.

Georgia’s coaching clinic starts on March 30. Information for the event can be found at
