Robert Kraft hopes Bill Belichick coaches into his 80s
With so much time spent wondering about the number of years that Patriots quarterback Tom Brady will play, here’s a question that rarely comes up: How much longer will Patriots coach Bill Belichick continue to essentially run the football operations?
In an interview to be aired during Tuesday’s PFT Live, Patriots owner Robert Kraft expresses a preference: “I hope he does it ‘til his 80s.” Kraft then cited examples of business icons like Warren Buffett and Rupert Murdoch, who remain highly productive beyond their 80th birthdays.
Belichick turns 65 in April. Which means that he could have another 15 years or more left, if he coaches as long as Kraft hopes Belichick remains in place.
