The New England Patriots have enjoyed a great run with Bill Belichick as their head coach.
Belichick, who’s now 70 years old, has been with the Patriots since 2000.
His time with the team has seen them winning 17 division champions, 31 playoff games, and six Super Bowls.
However, his team hasn’t seen that playoff flare lately, even with the Patriots still in the playoff picture.
With all the accomplishments he’s gotten since coming to New England, is it time for him to retire?
Age Shouldn’t Hold Belichick Back From Coaching
If anyone thinks age matters with Belichick, they haven’t seen Romeo Crennel.

During his last head coaching job in 2022, Crennel was 73 years old and left the NFL as the oldest head coach in NFL history.
While Belichick isn’t far off from 73, he still has time left to coach in the NFL.
However, his coaching time might draw to a close, as problems are rising in New England.
Belichick’s Quarterback Problems Have Put Pressure On Him
Jones brought the Patriots a playoff berth in his first season with the team.
However, his 2022 season saw Belichick benching him in favor of Bailey Zappe.
While it was short-lived, it causes an issue with how people see his coaching ability.
The indiscretion makes fans question if he still can coach at a high level.
But it also has people wondering if Brady actually made Belichick the successful coach he is.
While there are plenty of questions about his coaching, one shouldn’t be about him retiring.
He’s still got a couple of good years left in him.
