Stephen Belichick

OLB coach, New England

Bill Belichick’s assistants in New England have a notoriously bad service record outside of the Patriots organization, so why on earth would we think this guy will be any different? Let’s just say Bill is a little more invested in Stephen’s future success.

Stephen Belichick, son of GOAT Bill, has been a rising star in the Patriots organization. Moving through the ranks, Stephen now serves as the outside linebacker coach on the Patriots. This handles everything from off-ball to edge play and is a regular pit stop in Bill Belichick’s grooming process.

A coach since 2012, Steve was named one of the 14 NFL assistant coaches likely to soon become head coaches by USA Today’s Doug Farrar.

Before coaching OLBs he’s coached safeties and the entire defensive backfield. He’s even been the defensive play-caller. Steve’s no nonsense personality, pedigree, work ethic, and savant-like job knowledge make him an attractive candidate to most NFL teams so the question may not be, do the Dallas Cowboys want him as coach, but rather, does Steve Belichick want to coach the Dallas Cowboys?

Getting a good x’s and o’s guy, who holds players to an ultra-high standard, and isn’t afraid to hold players accountable, is just what the doctor ordered in Dallas. Stephen Belichick is popping up on a lot of radars these days and the Cowboys would be wise to jump in line sooner rather than later or the window of opportunity may soon close…
