Matt Patricia Biography

Matt Patricia is the head coach of Detroit Lions of the National Football League (NFL). He was born on Sept. 13, 1974, and was raised in Sherrill, N.Y.

Matt Patricia attended Vernon-Verona-Sherrill Central School, where he lettered in football and wrestling. He earned his bachelor’s degree in aeronautical engineering from R.P.I. and later earned a master’s degree in education from the University of Massachusetts.

Patricia was a standout offensive lineman at R.P.I., playing both center and guard. He helped his senior class to an overall record of 31-8, and the Engineers won three ECAC Championships during his collegiate career.

Prior to joining the Patriots, Patricia spent six seasons in the college ranks. Immediately preceding his move to the NFL, he was an offensive graduate assistant at Syracuse for three seasons. Prior to joining the Orange, he spent two seasons (1999-2000) as the defensive line coach at Amherst College. Patricia worked as an aeronautical engineer for two years before returning to coaching at Amherst in 1999. Patricia’s first coaching experience came in 1996, when he served as a graduate assistant at his alma mater, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute.

Patricia joined the Patriots in 2004 as a coaching assistant and enjoyed immediate success, by helping coach the Patriots to a victory in Super Bowl XXXIX. The following season, Patricia aided Dante Scarnecchia as assistant offensive line coach in a season in which the injury-riddled running back corps combined to rush for 1,388 yards on 395 carries.

Patricia spent five seasons as the Patriots’ linebackers coach and one season coaching the safeties. Since moving to coach the Patriots on defense in 2006, the team has finished in the top-10 in fewest points allowed in 10 of his 11 seasons with the defense. Patricia’s 2016 defense finished as the No. 1 scoring defense in the NFL by allowing only 15.6 points per game. The six rushing touchdowns allowed by his defense were fewest in the league last season. Patricia has also helped the Patriots lead the NFL in turnover differential in 2012 (+25) and 2010 (+28) and finished first in the AFC in 2011 (+17). The plus-28 turnover differential in 2010 is tied with the 2011 San Francisco 49ers for the second highest single-season differential in the NFL since 1970.

Matt Patricia Wife

Matt is happily married to Raina Patricia, whose maiden name is Grigelvick, grew up in Rhode Island and graduated from high school in Cumberland, just over 15 miles away from Foxborough. The pair tied the knot in 2009 in Aruba and now reside in in Wrentham, Massachusetts. She’s actually originally from Foxboro, according to Boston magazine, which had a series of small blurbs about her visiting Iceland and riding small horses around the country. I guess they thought it would be somewhat interesting for the travel section.

She went there with her brother Scott and also visited the capital of Reykjavik. This was before she was known to be in a relationship with Matt Patricia, so her being featured in Boston magazine was just sort of a lucky coup for her. Let it be said that her name change from Raina Grigelvich to Raina Patricia seems very cool.

Two decades later, he’ll be the 27th head coach in Detroit Lions history.

He told The Detroit News that the iconic bushy beard, which he had donned since 2011, was a tribute to his friends serving in the military overseas. According to Matt, he has in the past cleaned up the beard during previous offseasons, at the request of his wife, Raina Patricia.
