Belichick named NFL Coach of the Year

New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft still recalls the day that his organization traded a #1 draft choice to the New York Jets for the right to sign Bill Belichick as their head coach. He said people thought he and the Patriots were nuts.

Then Belichick goes out and is 5-11 in his first season at New England and the fans began to wonder themselves. But all of that is history as he is one of the NFL’s top head coaches.

The Patriots coach won the Associated Press 2010 NFL Coach of the Year award, the third time he has earned the  honor.

Belichick, who also was selected in 2003 and 2007, trails only Don Shula, a four-time winner of the award.

The controversial Belichick led the Patriots to a 14-2 record, the best in the NFL and beat out Tampa Bay’s Raheem Morris for the award.

Belichick has four 14-win regular seasons, no other coach has accomplished that mark. His .716 career winning percentage of .716 ranks eighth which ties him with Hall of Famer Paul Brown.

He is 126-50 overall and 14-5 in the playoffs with New England.
