Bill Belichick Didn’t Want To Meet With Tom Brady Face-To-Face When QB Decided To Leave Patriots

When Tom Brady decided to leave the New England Patriots after 19 historical seasons, his head coach didn’t want to meet with him face-to-face for one final goodbye.

In his upcoming book, “Its Better to be Feared“, ESPN’s Seth Wickersham reports that Belichick told Brady that he wasn’t available for an in-person meeting, and instead suggested a phone call was enough:

New England’s head coach, while on the call, reportedly told his longtime quarterback that he was the “best player the league had ever seen.”

On Wednesday, Belichick addressed the reported phone call in a press conference ahead of the Patriots-Buccaneers Week 4 matchup and said, “That’s not true.”
