New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick has been in many rumors regarding which team he will be coaching next season amid the Patriots’ struggles this year. Some believe he will remain with New England or retire from coaching overall. However, former MVP quarterback Cam Newton says that there is a clear answer for where Belichick will coach next season in the NFL.

Why The Carolina Panthers Make Sense
On his appearance on the “4th and 1 Show,” Newton said that Carolina’s owner, David Tepper, will try to hire Belichick during this upcoming offseason.
“I think [David] Tepper, knowing what I do know, he’s hoping that he can land Bill Belichick. That right there will be a win-win-win-win for David Tepper.”
Although nothing is set in stone just yet, this move by the Panthers would make a lot of sense. Belichick is most famous for turning former quarterback Tom Brady into arguably the greatest player of all time after he was one of the last picks in the draft. Carolina has a young quarterback in Bryce Young, and Belichick could take over and attempt to form him into a star quarterback in this league.
Bill Belichick Rumors
Belichick has been in a lot of rumors this season regarding his job security in New England amid a horrendous 2-9 record. Owner Robert Kraft has also been rumored to be ready to move on from the storied head coach after this season concludes if there is not a drastic turnaround. Belichick has been in rumors involving the Los Angeles Chargers, Chicago Bears, and the Washington Commanders.
New England is currently the worst team in the AFC Conference and is on pace to secure a top-five pick in the 2024 NFL draft. They will face the Chargers this week at home and will look to get just their third win of the season. Many blame the poor quarterback play of Mac Jones on the team’s struggles this season, but many also think the Belichick era in New England is coming to an end.
