Bill Belichick calls questions about whether he will return in 2018 ‘ridiculous’
It’s day one of the offseason and New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick is already fed up with questions about his future.
Belichick was bombarded with questions about whether he’d be back for 2018 on a post-Super Bowl conference call Monday, and he called the repeated questioning “ridiculous.”
Belichick was asked multiple times if he planned to return to coach next season. "I've addressed that question…I'm not going to be asked the same question every day. That's ridiculous."

Despite persistent rumors to the contrary, Belichick said a month ago that he’d be back. He doesn’t help his own cause with evasive answers to the continued questioning, but that’s just the way he is. In his mind, he’s answered the question once. There’s hardly any need for him to litigate it over and over, especially when he’s going to be focused on fixing what went wrong in the Super Bowl itself.
