NFL analyst Dan Orlovsky has apparently heard rumors that New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick already has his next job lined up for next season, and it’s not with the Patriots.
During his appearance on “The Pat McAfee Show,” Orlovsky wouldn’t go into detail, but he indicated he had heard speculation that Belichick and the Patriots would part ways after the season.
It’s been a rough stretch for the Patriots in 2023. The team is currently 2-8 and expected to land the third pick in the 2024 NFL Draft right now. This is a great spot for a Patriots team that needs multiple offensive pieces to compete in the AFC.
Belichick has already reached the 300 markth victory this season. Now another team might be looking for his services. The Athletic’s Diana Russini reported this last weekend, and Orlovsky expanded on the theory.
“I heard that would be the case, and it’s sort of: Who knows the likelihood of that happening? But I heard it was going to happen. And I heard that the location has also already been determined,” Orlovsky said. “I’m not giving (names) – I just heard that. … These are people who know what they are talking about.
This would certainly be a game-changer for New England and for Belichick.
You have to ask yourself if a new manager would be beneficial to the organization. Orlovsky’s words are a bit teasing at the moment. That being said, there has been enough smoke around these rumors to at least keep them entertained.
