Belichick leaving Patriots – reports

Bill Belichick

The New England Patriots are expected to confirm the departure of head coach Bill Belichick today after 24 seasons at the helm.

The 71-year-old, widely regarded as one of the greatest NFL coaches of all time, has led the Patriots to nine Super Bowls, winning six. He also guided them to 17 division championships in 19 seasons and leaves with an overall record of 266-121.

New England, however, have not won a play-off game since 2019 – when Tom Brady was still the team’s quarterback – leading to speculation his time in charge was coming to an end.

ESPN reported this morning that following talks between Belichick and team owner Robert Kraft – said to be amicable – they had agreed to go their separate ways.

Belichick, who had a year left on his contract, is not thought to be considering retirement and will instead look for a new coaching role elsewhere, with the Atlanta Falcons the early frontrunners.

As for the impending Patriots vacancy, ESPN reported current linebackers coach Jarod Mayo is a favourite of Kraft and is a leading candidate.

Belichick’s departure is expected to be rubber-stamped at a press conference later today.
