Gronkowski Unveils Insights on Why Belichick Missed Out on Falcons Job


Bill Belichick has failed to land a new job as head coach after leaving the New England Patriots, where he spent 24 seasons and won six Super Bowl titles.

Belichick conducted two interviews with the Atlanta Falcons. Rob Gronkowski, the former Patriots star, thought that the Falcons were the ideal place for Belichick to land and the team to reach the next level. The Falcons chose Raheem Morris instead.

What happened?

Gronkowski told Fox News Digital, “I believe that would have been the best landing destination for him.” “I think what happened was that I don’t believe that the Atlanta Falcons wanted to give that much power to Coach Belichick and hand over all decisions.” “Coach Belichick however would have made a perfect match.”

The former New England Patriots tight end, who is partnering with Bounty in a Super Bowl LVIII campaign, said that Belichick should choose the Falcons.

He said, that Belichick’s failure to get the job might end up being a blessing.

“But I think it happened for a reason. I think Coach Belichick should take a year off from coaching,” he said. “I mean, he’s put his time in. He’s been coaching for 50 years straight, too, in the NFL. I mean, he can take a year off, reinvent himself, [go] find himself, go enjoy something other than just football.”

“I think it would be great for him and then have him come back next year, resurrected and ready to go and put a display on wherever he lands a head coaching job next year.”

Belichick sent a thank you message to Patriots fans in an advertisement published by the Boston Globe on Sunday.

He was also a three-time AP Coach of the Year. Throughout his career, he has won 302 games, with a record of 266-121 during his time with the Patriots.
