Tom Brady’s Dad Brutally Rips Into Former Patriots’ Coach Bill Belichick

Tom Brady Sr. doesn’t hold back when discussing Bill Belichick’s role in the New England Patriots’ dynasty.

In a recent interview with The Boston Globe, he lauded Belichick as “the best coach in football, bar none,” challenging the notion that his son, Tom Brady, was solely responsible for their success.

Brady Sr. acknowledged that it’s unfair to credit only his son for the Patriots’ achievements, emphasizing Belichick’s significant contribution.

However, he didn’t shy away from criticizing the legendary coach’s interpersonal skills, which he described as “horrible.” According to Brady Sr., Belichick’s ego played a role in his struggles after Tom Brady’s departure.

“How many times has he said — back in ‘15 or ‘16 — that he wanted to win without Tommy? When he went without Tommy, he didn’t know what he was losing. You’re losing more than just a quarterback. Ego sometimes gets in the way of things. I think it did with Bill. Now, he’s in a situation where he’s gotten crucified for the last few years by everybody and a lot of luster has come off his rose.”

In the four seasons following Tom Brady’s departure, Belichick’s record was 29-38 with just one playoff appearance. The Patriots’ disappointing 4-13 performance in 2023 ultimately led to Belichick and the team parting ways.

As of now, Bill Belichick remains without a coaching position, and the Washington Commanders are still in search of a new head coach.

This is a debate that has been talked about since Tom Brady left the Patriots. Is Bill Belichick the best head coach of all-time? Or was he a product of the greatness of Brady?
