Six-time Super Bowl Champion head coach Bill Belichick will not be coaching in the NFL this upcoming season after parting ways with the New England Patriots during the offseason and failing to land another coaching opportunity. But it doesn’t sound like he’s giving up coaching in the league entirely.

While Bill Belichick will not be coaching in the NFL this season, a recent report from ESPN indicates that the legendary head coach is holding out for possible opportunities with a few teams for the 2025 NFL season.

“In the coming weeks, Belichick is expected to sign a deal to do analysis for Peyton Manning’s Omaha Productions, which produces ESPN’s “ManningCast” during “Monday Night Football.” He is believed to be biding his time until next January for openings on teams he has told confidants he would be interested in coaching: the Dallas Cowboys, Philadelphia Eagles and New York Giants,” ESPN reported on Wednesday.

But even if Belichick wants to return to coaching, that doesn’t necessarily mean he will have the opportunity.

“A source who spoke with a longtime friend of Belichick said the friend wonders if the coach will have another opportunity: ‘I don’t think Bill Belichick will ever be a head coach again in the National Football League,’ the friend said. ‘Unless it’s [for] Jerry Jones,'” ESPN wrote.

We’ll have to see how it plays out.
