Bill Belichick’s time in New England has come to an end. The Patriots are parting ways with the legendary head coach that has brought us 6 Super Bowl championships. Regardless of your feeling on this matter, you can NOT deny the importance that Bill has had on the Patriots organization in the 24 years he’s been the team’s head coach.
Let’s first take a look at Bill’s accomplishments. Bill has led the New England Patriots to six Super Bowl titles (2002, 2004, 2005, 2015, 2017, and 2019). This is the most of any NFL head coach. Under Belichick, the Patriots have a regular-season record of 262–108–0 over 23 seasons which makes him by far the most successful head coach in Patriots history. He has also led the Patriots to 17 divisional titles. As of today, Bill Belichick has 302 career wins which puts him third on the all time list behind George Halas and Don Shula. Where will Bill end up? That has yet to be known. And better yet, who will become the next head coach of the Patriots? That is also up in the air but the clear cut favorites include Jerod Mayo and now Mike Vrabel.
Bill has been solely responsible for the molding of so many athletes over the years. There have been countless numbers of players who’ve played under Bill that say he’s had a tremendous impact on their lives. Many of these players paid homage to Bill yesterday via social media. We’ve gathered a list of some of the more notable ones. We’ll start with Tom Brady.
