Belichick might be 60, but there’s a strong feeling around the league that he’s not close to being done, and could well outlast Brady in New England. When asked about his future, Belichick’s stock response privately has been, I’m told, “What else am I going to do?” Here’s the thing — he’s comfortable. He went to prep school and college in the region, lives in the seaside town of Hingham, and his beloved Nantucket is a short drive/boat ride away. He’s got all the power a coach could want organizationally, and now his son is working for him. Maybe he reverses course down the line, but at this point my sense is he’s staying in Foxborough for quite a while to come.
