Quinnipiac professor: Belichick will forever be remembered in New England
News 12’s Angelica Toruno spoke with Quinnipiac University journalism professor Rich Hanley about the legacy of former New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick.
"He had a certain way about coaching players that was able to construct victorious teams in an era when the NFL rules mitigate against such things," Hanley said.
The team parted ways with Belichick on Thursday and named Jerod Mayo as the next head coach, despite Belichick having one year left in his contract.
The Patriots had just four wins this year, but throughout Belichick's tenure, the 71-year-old won 333 games and six Super Bowl titles.
"One day, you're on top of the world, and the next day the fans turn against you when you don't win," Hanley said.
He added that Belichick's coaching style was the last of its kind. He also said he believes Belichick will continue to coach football.
There have been talks that the Washington Commanders and Atlanta Falcons are eyeing him, seeing as both teams have coaching vacancies.
