Steve Belichick is set to become the University of Washington’s new defensive coordinator after his father Bill Belichick parted ways with the New England Patriots.
Steve Belichick has spent the last 12 years as a defensive assistant with the Patriots, assuming play calling duties when long-time assistant Brian Flores left the franchise in 2019.
His younger brother Brian also served as a defensive assistant during the latter stages of their father’s glittering, 24-year stint in charge of the Patriots.
However, that tenure came to an end last month after New England finished a dismal 2023 campaign with a 4-13 record, missing the playoffs for a third time in the last four seasons.

Both Steve and Brian Belichick were reportedly offered the chance to stay on as part of Jerod Mayo’s staff after he was promoted to the role of head coach, but the former is now set to move into college football.
On Monday, both ESPN and The Athletic reported that Steve Belichick was set to take up a new role under recently appointed Washington Huskies head coach Jedd Fisch.
Fisch, who spent one season as the Patriots’ quarterbacks coach in 2020, signed a seven-year contract with the Huskies last month after Kalen DeBoer left Seattle to take the head coaching role at Alabama.
