BREAKING: It is confirmed for Bill Belichick after 24 seasons

Published January 11, 2024 at 8:45
Bill Belichick is set to end his 24-year tenure with the New England Patriots this Thursday, concluding an unparalleled era in NFL history that saw the team clinch six Super Bowl victories, according to ESPN's league sources.

Throughout this week, Belichick and team owner Robert Kraft engaged in extensive discussions about their future paths. Insiders privy to these talks reported a harmonious tone, with neither party expressing any discord. The result was a jointly agreed upon decision, leaving both parties satisfied and content. An external observer remarked on the dignified manner in which both Belichick and Kraft handled the situation, befitting a duo that will be remembered as one of the most successful and honored in NFL history.

With one year left on his contract, Belichick will be free to leave the Patriots without any demands for compensation from the team. His intention to continue coaching is clear, and he is likely to attract attention from several of the seven NFL teams currently in need of a head coach, possibly including the Atlanta Falcons, as per sources from the league.

At 71, Belichick departs from New England holding a remarkable tally of 333 wins (playoffs included), placing him second in all-time career victories, just behind Don Shula's 347. Alongside George Halas and Curly Lambeau, Belichick is one of only three NFL coaches to have secured six championships since the league initiated its postseason in 1933.

His 24 years with the Patriots marked the fifth lengthiest stint of any head coach with a single team. In 2023, he rounded off his 49th straight season in the NFL, setting a record for the most continuous seasons of coaching in the league's history.
