Early Career

On April 16, 1952, in Nashville, Tennessee, William Stephen Belichick was born. Bill Belichick, the only child of Steve and Jeannette Belichick, showed an early talent for football, which he no doubt inherited from his father, a longtime assistant coach and college football scout.

Belichick observed his father as he dissected game film and drew up plays, and he frequently accompanied him to coaches meetings. Belichick was a regular part of the team’s practices by his early teens, and he was well-versed in the game’s schemes and formations.

Belichick attended Wesleyan University in Middletown, Connecticut, after graduating from Phillips Academy in Andover, Massachusetts, where he played lacrosse and earned an undergraduate degree in economics.

Following his graduation from Wesleyan in 1975, Belichick took a job as a gopher for head coach Ted Marchibroda with the Baltimore Colts for $25 per week. From there, Belichick worked with a number of NFL teams, including the Detroit Lions and the Denver Broncos, in an attempt to advance up the league’s coaching ladder.

The New York Giants hired Belichick to coach their special teams unit in 1979. Belichick stayed with the team for 12 seasons, eventually becoming defensive coordinator under head coach Bill Parcells, who led the team to two Super Bowl victories.

Browns Tenure and Rejoining Parcells

Cleveland Browns owner Art Modell hired Belichick as his new head coach following the Giants’ second Super Bowl victory in 1991. Belichick’s tenure in Cleveland was turbulent. Belichick, who was demanding of his players and not a fan of the media, struggled to win over the team’s fans and its volatile owner. Belichick was fired following the 1995 season and Modell’s announcement that he would relocate the franchise to Baltimore.

He quickly found work with his old mentor, Bill Parcells, the head coach of the New England Patriots at the time. The pair worked in New England during the 1996 season, when the Patriots reached the Super Bowl but were defeated by the Green Bay Packers. Belichick followed Parcells to the New York Jets the following year, where Parcells had been hired as head coach.

Patriots Head Coach

In early 2000, Belichick was given another chance to lead a team when New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft named him head coach. While old Browns fans mocked New England’s hiring, Belichick quickly demonstrated why Kraft wanted him. Following a difficult 2000 season, the coach rode the young arm of quarterback Tom Brady, who had stepped in early in the season for an injured Drew Bledsoe, and led the Patriots to a Super Bowl XXXVI victory over the heavily favored St. Louis Rams in 2001.

Belichick and the Patriots went on to win Super Bowl XXXVIII two years later. The following season, the team successfully defended its title, winning Super Bowl XXXIX against Terrell Owens and the Philadelphia Eagles.

Belichick has three times been named “Coach of the Year,” in 2003, 2007 and 2010. In both 2007 and 2011, he led the New England Patriots to the Super Bowl, where they were defeated by Eli Manning and the New York Giants. During the 2007 season, he became the first head coach in history to lead a team to a 16-0 record.

Belichick’s accomplishments in 2014 were even more impressive, as he led the Patriots to their sixth Super Bowl appearance and fourth championship, tying NFL coaching records.

‘Spygate’ and ‘Deflategate’

Not everything about Bill Belichick’s coaching career has been a success. It was revealed in 2007 that the Patriots had secretly videotaped opposing coaches for several years in order to learn their play-calling signals. The league fined Belichick $500,000 after the incident, which became known as “Spygate.” The Patriots were fined an additional $250,000 and lost a first-round draft pick in 2008.

More accusations of foul play were leveled after it was revealed that New England had used underinflated footballs in the 2014 AFC title game, dubbed “Deflategate,” though Belichick denied any wrongdoing.

Breaking Records

Belichick led the Patriots to the AFC Championship game in 2016, but they were defeated by the Denver Broncos. In 2017, the Patriots faced off against the Atlanta Falcons in Super Bowl LII. Brady led the Patriots to a 34-28 comeback victory in the first overtime game in NFL history, making Belichick the first head coach to win five Super Bowl rings and play in seven championships.

Following a loss to the Philadelphia Eagles in the following year’s Super Bowl, New England represented the AFC once more in Super Bowl LIII. The Patriots defeated the high-scoring Los Angeles Rams 13-3 thanks to an airtight defensive scheme, giving Belichick a remarkable sixth Super Bowl victory as a head coach.

The Patriots then went 8-0 in 2019, before sputtering down the stretch and being eliminated in the first round of the playoffs by the Tennessee Titans.

Post-Brady Era

After nearly two decades of Belichick-Brady collaboration, the head coach found himself without a quarterback when Brady announced his signing with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in March 2020.

Personal Life

Belichick was married to Debby Clarke for nearly 30 years before their divorce in 2006. Amanda, Stephen, and Brian are the couple’s three children.
