One of his former players, though, doesn't see that happening.
"Everybody wants to say, 'Hey, man, he's going to coach until Brady leaves,'" former NFL wideout Deion Branch told Around the NFL. "I think he's bigger than that, because Belichick loves the game of football."
Branch spent seven seasons in New England and believes his old coach would want to prove he can win with another quarterback.
Here on behalf of TGI Friday's "Happy Every Hour" event, Branch told us that the presence of rookie Jimmy Garoppolo might be enough to keep Belichick around deep into the future.
"I think that's another challenge in front of coach Belichick," Branch said. "I think he'd love to go out and conquer."
