Report: Bill Belichick is writing a book

We don’t know when or if former Patriots coach Bill Belichick will coach once more. We don’t know whether or not or to what extent we’ll see him on TV this 12 months.

Here’s one factor we do know. Belichick reportedly shall be writing a book.

According to Andrew Marchand of TheAthletic.com, that’s the plan for the six-time Super Bowl winner. Per the report, Simon & Schuster’s Avid Reader Press is thought of to be the frontrunner for the mission. (A spokesperson for the imprint declined remark to Marchand.)

It can be attention-grabbing to get Belichick’s aspect of the story about his 20-plus years in New England, particularly within the aftermath of The Dynasty sequence. It shall be way more attention-grabbing to see when the book comes out.

I do know from my very own expertise with the publishing trade that publishing a book via a conventional writer entails a timeline that may take months to finish. Everything must be correctly deliberate and scheduled and promoted and no matter. If Belichick’s book will come out earlier than or throughout the 2024 season, they’ll must get cracking.

If it’s popping out in 2025, and if he plans on teaching in 2025, that may very well be awkward — relying on the content material of the book.

Much of it is determined by what he’ll be overlaying within the book, and the way far it’ll go. The most compelling tales he may inform would in flip make for essentially the most attention-grabbing book — and an much more attention-grabbing book tour, particularly if he spits coffee on Kathie Lee.
