Sources: Personnel executive Licht leaving Patriots - Extra Points - Boston.com That is an interesting question; why leave? Better weather? - That's possible. More money? - Very doubtful; the Bidwell's are known for their frugality. More autonomy? - That would be my guess. It has come out in the latest Michael Holley book about how player evaluations were dismissed, and Belichick overrode those recommendations. It could also be a case of the opportunity to improve a team being more rewarding than keeping the status quo. There's also the consideration that no matter how well you do your job in Foxboro, a certain someone else will always get the bulk of the credit for those personnel decisions. Best of luck to Jason Licht in Arizona.
