Former Patriots nose tackle Vince Wilfork isn’t completely done in New England.

The 11-year staple along the Patriots’ defensive line is scheduled to deliver the commencement speech at the New England Institute of Technology May 3, the school said Monday.

Wilfork, who wore No. 75, will help celebrate the college’s 75th anniversary and will receive an honorary doctor of humane letters during the ceremony.

The 6-foot 2-inch NFL veteran signed a two-year deal with the Texans last month after the Patriots declined to pick up his $4 million roster bonus, which made him a free agent.

NEIT will also honor former Rhode Island governor Philip Noel at the ceremony.
