Robert Kraft has someone in mind to replace Bill Belichick
Bill Belichick has enjoyed tremendous success as a head coach in the previous 23 seasons. Belichick has won six Super Bowls as the head coach of the New England Patriots. (He has two more Super Bowls as an assistant with the New York Giants.) But the 70-year-old coach only has so many more seasons he can retain his title. And Patriots owner Robert Kraft is keeping tabs on a possible replacement for Belichick.
According to Nick Shook and Judy Battista with the NFL Network, Kraft said inside linebackers coach Jerod Mayo is a “strong” choice to be the Patriots’ next head coach:
“Well, he’s definitely a strong candidate to be the heir apparent, but we have some other good people in our system,” Kraft told NFL Network’s Judy Battista at the Annual League Meeting on Monday. “So right now, we have a good head coach, and we’re doing everything we can to support him, and make sure we do everything we can to win.”
Belichick seems to have no signs of slowing down. So that should give Mayo more time to gain experience and earn a promotion from his position coaching gig to a coaching title with more leadership, like defensive coordinator.
