FOXBOROUGH -- Both the Patriots and Bill Belichick have kept contract details mostly quiet through the years, but according to a pregame report by the NFL Network Thursday, Belichick will be coaching the Patriots “for a long time.”
The contract extension Belichick signed in 2007 was set to expire after the 2013 season. Now, according to the report, a new deal has been reached.
“He is not going anywhere,” the report said.
Belichick is 170-64 with the Patriots, and is the longest-tenured head coach in the NFL, having guided New England since 2000.
He’s had 12 consecutive winning seasons, 10 straight years of at least 10 wins, and taken the team to five Super Bowls, winning three.
