Patriots’ Nick Caserio addresses situation with Texans

Nick Caserio, Patriots

New England Patriots director of player personnel Nick Caserio made a public appearance to media on Saturday to clear up details about his involvement with the Houston Texans.

Caserio, who has been with the Patriots organization as a coach and executive since 2002, was rumored to be heading to the Texans to fill their empty general manager position.

Caserio spoke about the confusion and attempted to minimize the severity of the situation, per Mike Florio of NBC Sports’ Pro Football Talk:

“I’d say I’m pretty honored and privileged to be in the position I’m in, to work for this organization,” Caserio said when asked to describe his feelings on the Texans abandoning the pursuit of Caserio after New England filed tampering charges. “It’s a great organization with a lot of great people. I’m thankful for the opportunity that I have each day to come to work and come into this building. We’ve got a lot of great people. I’m fortunate and honored to work with Bill [Belichick] on a day-to-day basis and a lot of other people in this organization. … My focus is in trying to do the best that I can every day and be the best version of myself for this team and this organization and that’s what the focus is.”

“I love being here, and right now we’re focused on trying to get the team ready for this season,” Caserio said. “I’m happy to be here and I love what I do on a day-to-day basis.”

Caserio, 43, continued to preach about his level of involvement with — and excitement about — the current group within New England’s organization.
