Bill Belichick isn’t going anywhere, at least not anytime soon.
Belichick, who has been head coach of the Patriots since 2000, renewed his contract in 2007, taking him through the 2013 season. That contract was set to expire after this season, but his future is no longer in question, according to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport.
From the sounds of it, the Patriots seem to have renewed the head coach’s contract once again. Rapoport even quoted one source as saying that Belichick would be “coaching for a long time.”
Belichick is the winningest coach in Patriots franchise history, going 152-57 in 13 seasons heading into Thursday night’s game. He won the franchise’s first Super Bowl in 2001 and three championships overall. The Patriots have only had one losing season — 2000 (5-11), which was his first — under Belichick.
