William Stephen Belichick (born April 16, 1952 in Nashville, Tennessee) is the American football head coach for the New England Patriots of the National Football League. After spending his first 15 seasons in the league as an assistant coach, Belichick got his first head coaching job with the Cleveland Browns in 1991. Of his five seasons coaching Cleveland, only one featured a winning record, and Belichick did not get another head coaching opportunity until 2000 with the Patriots. Since then, Belichick has coached the Patriots to four Super Bowls; three victories in Super Bowls XXXVI, XXXVIII, and XXXIX and a loss in Super Bowl XLII. He was named the AP NFL Coach of the Year twice, for the 2003 and 2007 seasons. During the 2007 season, Belichick was penalized by the NFL for his involvement in the illegal videotaping of opponents' defensive signals, referred to in the press as Spygate. The investigation into his involvement and the scope of the illegal videotaping is ongoing, with Belichick and several other Patriots staffers being reinterviewed after the Super Bowl, and Senator Arlen Specter threatening Congressional Hearings on the matter.
