Coaching career

College

Despite not playing football while attending college at Bowling Green University, Pees began his coaching career in 1979 at the University of Findlay as their defensive coordinator and secondary coach following six years as a high school coach. In 1983, Pees moved to Miami University, where he was also the defensive coordinator and secondary coach of the team. From 1987 to 1989, Pees served as the secondary coach at the United States Naval Academy. Pees then took the defensive coordinator job at the University of Toledo, which he held for four seasons with the team. He spent the 1994 season under head coach Lou Holtz as the secondary coach for the University of Notre Dame. From 1995 to 1997, Pees worked as the defensive coordinator and inside linebackers coach under Nick Saban at Michigan State University. In 1998, he earned his first head coaching job at Kent State University. When Pees left the program after the 2003 season, his six-year stint made him the longest tenured head football coach in the school's history.

New England Patriots

Prior to the 2004 NFL season, Pees left Kent State for the Patriots, spending two years as the Patriots' linebackers coach. After the 2005 season, Pees was promoted to defensive coordinator, replacing Eric Mangini, who became the head coach of the New York Jets. With his contract set to expire following the 2009, Pees chose not to return to the team on January 14, 2010, and said he was considering retirement.[1]
