Belichick 'absolutely' intends to return as Patriots coach

Belichick 'absolutely' intends to return as Patriots coach

"I'm just focused on preparing for the Tennessee Titans with coach Bill Belichick as my head coach for the 2017 season", he said.

"Absolutely", he told reporters on a conference call ahead of the Patriots' AFC divisional round playoff game against the Tennessee Titans on Saturday. ESPN reported Friday of a rift between Belichick, quarterback Tom Brady and owner Robert Kraft, stating, among other things, that the coach "left the impression with some friends that the current dynamic was unsustainable".

The team released a statement on Friday saying there was no strife among the franchise's main trio. "I'm not really interested in responding to all those random and in a lot of cases baseless comments". "Nothing has happened since then, so I don't have anything to add to it". "So I don't have anything to add to it".

On Monday, Belichick said he "absolutely" plans on coaching the defending champions again in 2018, per Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.

Kraft told the MMQB last weekend that he also expects Belichick to be with New England next season.

Kraft, Belichick and Brady have been together since 2000, when Belichick was in his first season with the team and Brady was a sixth-round draft pick.

New England thrived when he returned, and went on to earn its fifth Lombardi Trophy with a record comeback during its Super Bowl win over Atlanta.

"When you're lucky enough to have someone exceptional, you let them do their job and you get out of the way", Kraft said.
