It does not appear that Bill Belichick will have an opportunity to be a head coach in the NFL next season, but that does not necessarily mean he is going to take a year off of work.

There has been some talk of Belichick potentially working as an NFL analyst with a television network. Ian Rapoport of NFL Media spoke on Sunday about that possibility and also floated the idea of Belichick taking on a consulting role with a team.

“He could sit out the year and potentially become, maybe, the most coveted coach next year. I know if the Cowboys and Eagles struggle again, certainly that’s going to be a topic of discussion,” Rapoport said. “He could be a consultant for a team. That’s certainly a possibility as well. … I wouldn’t be surprised if he joined us right here in the TV world. He already won an Emmy. I wouldn’t put it past him to try for another.”

As Rapoport mentioned, Belichick won a Sports Emmy for his work as an analyst on NFL Network’s “NFL 100 All-Time Team” series in 2019. That allowed fans to see a much different side of the 71-year-old, who is known for being stone-faced and openly annoyed with the media.

Assuming Belichick wants to coach in 2025, it would probably serve him well to remain in the public spotlight by working in TV. That will keep him fresh in the minds of teams when head coach jobs open again next offseason.

It appeared for a while that Belichick was going to land one head coach job, and a report this week claimed he is furious he did not get it.
