Set to turn 65 in April, Belichick has been coaching in the NFL since 1975. He is currently in his 17th season as Patriots head coach, making him the longest-tenured active coach in the league.
Belichick was asked in a press conference this week about being able to work into his mid-60s, as he has.
“I don’t really see it as work,” Belichick said. “This actually beats working. You get to do what you love to do.”
