Could Bill Belichick be considering a move out west for the twilight years of his coaching career? ESPN’s Dan Orlovsky raised eyebrows on Tuesday’s “Pat McAfee Show” when he hinted at the possibility of Belichick and the New England Patriots parting ways by mutual agreement.
“I’ve heard more and more of that over the past week. … I have heard that that’s gonna be the case. And who knows the likelihood of it? [But] I’ve heard that that’s gonna happen and I’ve heard the location is already kind of determined as well,” Orlovsky revealed during the discussion.
This sparked reactions from fans on social media, with speculations and humorous takes circulating. Some fans expressed concern about the potential impact on Chargers quarterback Justin Herbert if Belichick were to join the team.
Given that Belichick could potentially benefit from warmer weather and could have a quarterback in the mold of Tom Brady with Justin Herbert, the idea raises intriguing possibilities. However, questions remain about which teams might be willing to hand over the coaching reins to a figure close to retirement age.
The unfolding narrative will likely garner more attention as the season progresses.
