Bill Belichick          

Head Football Coach for the New England Patriots

Bill Belichick, who has guided the Patriots since 2000, is the only head coach in NFL history to win three Super Bowl championships in a four-year span. This achievement is the latest triumph in a career during which he has helped produce five Super Bowl titles, six conference championships, and 11 division titles since entering the NFL in 1975.

Born into the sport, Bill Belichick is the son of Steve Belichick (1919-2005), who played fullback for the Detroit Lions in 1941, was an assistant coach at the U.S. Naval Academy for 33 years. Belichick senior instilled in his son an overarching love of the game and respect for the men who play it. Thanks in large measure to his father’s influence, Bill Belichick, who holds a degree in economics from Wesleyan University, brought not only passion to the gridiron, but insight and experience as well. Known as a man of remarkably modest ego, he believes that a team is truly “all about the players.” His philosophy of leadership, his willingness to give back to his community, and his record of success make Bill Belichick a man worth listening to.

Bill Belichick is in his 32nd season as an NFL coach and is the only head coach in NFL history to win three Super Bowl championships in a four-year span. He was hired by CEO and Chairman Robert Kraft on Jan. 27, 2000 and is in his seventh season as Patriots head coach in 2006. In his first six seasons in New England, Bill Belichick has delivered three Super Bowl championships, three conference titles, four division crowns and 10 playoff victories while posting an overall record of 73-34.

Bill Belichick has led the Patriots to nine or more victories in each of the last five seasons, the only NFL head coach to accomplish that feat. Additionally, his teams have won the AFC East title and advanced in the playoffs in three straight seasons and have accomplished the feat in four of the last five seasons. The Patriots’ three straight years of playoff advancement mark the longest such streak in the NFL and their string of three straight division crowns is a team record and is tied for the longest current streak in the league.

Bill Belichick’s recent accomplishments are the latest triumphs in a career during which he has helped produce five Super Bowl titles, six conference championships and 11 division titles since entering the NFL in 1975. Now in his 32nd season in the NFL, he has more years of NFL experience than any of the other 31 head coaches. He won his first two Super Bowls as the defensive coordinator for the New York Giants in 1986 and again in 1990 before claiming three Super Bowl championships with the Patriots. George Seifert is the only other man to have won multiple Super Bowls as a head coach and as an assistant coach.
