The literary market continues to be flooded by books about the most polarizing team in the sports… you guessed it… your New England Patriots.
The latest comes from ESPN’s Ian O’Connor. It’s “Belichick: The Making of the Greatest Football Coach of All Time”.
O’Connor chatted with over 300 sources in his research. However, the coach himself and Tom Brady both declined to be interviewed.
Naturally, the Brady-Belichick relationship and the fact that the quarterback nearly decided to walk away is the big takeaway, but there are many others. The bond between Belichick and his Naval officer dad, Steve. Why Bill and Nick Saban parted ways with the Cleveland Browns. Urban Meyer’s warnings concerning his troubled tight end at Florida, Aaron Hernandez. Why Belichick was never considered to succeed Bill Parcells as head coach of the New York Giants.
There’s Deflategate. Spygate. Malcom Butler’s Super Bowl benching and the impact it’s had on other players – and how it’s changed the way they feel about their head coach.
There’s a lot to delve into, and we’ll do just that when author Ian O’Connor joins us on Cail and Company on 107.7 The Pulse and 107.3 WEMJ this Monday at 12:30.
