NFL legend and long time New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick is going to remain jobless for the 2024 season. He appeared to have interest from the Atlanta Falcons before they hired Raheem Morris, and now it is being reported that actually Belichick was offered the job from Atlanta but turned down the job. It appears that owner Arthur Blank offered the job to Belichick but the legend declined the offer.
Bill Belichick Turned Down NFL Head Coaching Job
Former NFL quarterback Boomer Esiason gave the new report saying that actually Belichick actually declined the offer, but that he could’ve been the head coach of the Falcons. Esiason shared what he was told about Belichick on the latest edition of WFAN’s “Boomer and Gio” show. He was quoted saying:
“I was told yesterday, and I do believe it from the source that I got it from, that supposedly Arthur Blank was bought in to Bill Belichick and could have offered him the job,” Esiason said, via the New York Post. “I don’t know why guys say no, but legitimately an NFL executive basically told me that they believe that Arthur Blank offered Bill the job.”
Boomer Esiason Says Bill Belichick Declined The Atlanta Falcons Offer
Boomer continued by saying that although Belichick declined the offer that does not mean that he was offered everything he wanted. It could be safe to assume that the Falcons offer did not include Belichick to have full oversight over all the football operations. Perhaps Belichick declined the offer because it was not enough in his eyes. Boomer was further quoted saying:
“Now there may have been some caveats to that offer, you never know, it’s never ‘OK Bill, I want you, here’s a five-year contract, you do whatever you want.’ I don’t think it was one of those. The way it was made and sounded to me was like ‘OK, I understand your concerns, but you’re gonna have to deal with some of this and we want you to come in, we want you to be the coach,’ and then maybe he just thought better of it.”
Belichick will not be coaching in 2024, and now we know that it was his decision to do so. Maybe he is waiting for one of the better teams to fire their coach, and he would return to the game after a short break.
