View Poll Results: How long does Bill Belichick coach
One of the Pre-game shows last week had an interview with Bill Walsh, and when he was asked what his biggest regret was, he said it was leaving the Niners too early, he said, we had a good young team, and I could have stayed around and won a few more SUperbowls. I can only hope that BB was watching.
The Jets look like a Super Bowl contender right now about as much as Rosie O’Donnell looks like a threat for the Miss America crown. -NY Post 12/19/2011

BB's coaching idols are Paul Brown and Don Shula. He's a lifer, and longevity in a single program is something he admires, the true goal of a great coach. Another dozen years sounds about right.
I agree. IMO BB wants to win as many SB's as is possible by one coach. He's a super competitor and will want to leave a record that will be nearly impossible to match! Not to mention, I think he's very happy in his working relationship with the Krafts, now if we can just get Pioli to stay as long...
Enjoying this Championship era!!
Now I know it wouldn't be BB's style to jeopardize the future of the franchise, but the mere fact that he keeps managing the team for the future and I mean like 5 years down the road future is a great sign that he is not planning in leaving anytime soon. I honestly have no idea how we will fit the 7-11 draft picks we are going to get this year onto this roster, I have to assume we are going to do a lot of moving around the draft board either for the year after or for better picks.
In front of his team after a 28-10 loss to the Packers in 2002, Belichick said: "We have a lot of smart guys in this room, but on the football field we play like a bunch of f------- morons. If you are one of the players flinching at the harshness of these words, you might as well begin packing. There is no way you are going to last as a New England Patriot."
If you watched FSNE over Thanksgiving, Tom Curren predicts, that maybee this is Bill Belichick's last yr.. and I think Dickerson came on and said the big story next yr will be Charlie Weis will be the next head coach of the new england patriots.. pure speculation I guess, but how much longer does he coach, technically this is his last yr under contract that we know about, so how long??
He's going to coach until he takes his last breath. It may be like Joe-Pa cruising the sidelines on his scooter, but he'll be coaching nonetheless.
What a downer. As you can tell I'm in denial and I try not to think about it. I'd have to think that he'd like one more SB ring before hanging it up.

But BB was quoted in GQ as saying he wouldn't be Marv Levy either. I think he plans to retire but even he does know when. It was clear from his quote in USA Today that he still enjoys what he does. Let's hope he stays for a long time to come. It's possible the next Patriots coach might also be named Belichick -- Brian Belichick.
I polled as 4 more years but I believe the choices should have been longer.
BB enjoys coaching. I believe he knows that with this org he has a chance to make football history with more SB wins. Agree that throwing $ at the WR who-is-dead-to-me would have been an indicator of thoughts of departure. He didn't.
Throughout history, poverty is the normal condition of man. Advances which permit this norm to be exceeded — here and there, now and then — are the work of an extremely small minority, frequently despised, often condemned, and almost always opposed by all right-thinking people. Whenever this tiny minority is kept from creating, or (as sometimes happens) is driven out of a society, the people then slip back into abject poverty.
This is known as "bad luck." RAH
They talked about it on Four Downs with Felger last night. He and Borges seem to think he is signed through next season. Borges says he is hearing that the Texans will try to lure him down there and that he might be interested in the job. They also said that Dean Pees probably won't go to BC because he is the apparent successor to Belichick if Belichick was to leave.
Personally, I don't see it. I think Belichick will want to ride this wave as long as he feels he can win Super Bowls. I think if the Pats fell out of contention for a period of time, he might move.
If Belichick was planning to leave after this year or in a year or two, why wouldn't have paid Branch? Keeping Branch obviously would have given us a better shot at winning the Super Bowl and he wouldn't have to deal with the ramifications of his contract in terms of cap dollars or other players demanding those type of salaries when their contract is up.
Belichick is a relatively young guy. He still has kids in school. He has a good situation and must talk to Parcells and hear about the headaches he has dealing with Jerry Jones and his stupid moves (T.O. , Vanderjagt, etc.).
