Is Bill Belichick’s Next Coaching Gig at a New England High School?
It's weird to think that our own New England Patriots coach for 24 seasons is just gone. Not even moving on to coach another NFL team, but just gone from the professional football world after 50 years.
There aren't any NFL teams left looking for a coach. According to The Athlete website, the Washington Commanders are the final team looking for one, and hired someone from the Dallas Cowboys, leaving Mr. Bill Belichick – arguably the best coach in league history – without a team.
But wait, is the 72-year-old Hall of Famer going to dip into retirement as a high school coach at Nantucket High School?
According to CBS News Boston, the Whalers need to find a new head football coach, and the high school has tossed out the idea. Could one of the island's most famous part-time residents make Nantucket a full-time home, at least during the high school football season? Will he become Coach Bill, if you will?
Nantucket Athletic Director Travis Lombardi (that's the coolest last name, by the way) is in the middle of the hiring process and interviewing several candidates, according to CBS News Boston. He wouldn't mind if Coach Bill said, "Let's do this."
Belichick has spoken to the Nantucket football team a bunch of times over the years, and is a huge admirer of the team and previous coaching staff.
Lombardi told WBZ NewsRadio he's not expecting it to happen, but the door is completely open. He's interviewing incredible talent, but come on, it's Bill Belichick.
As long as a high school coaching salary isn't an issue, then are you in, Coach Bill?
