    I always knew Costas was a smart guy!
    Vote for Belichick was cast by Bob Costas - Reiss' Pieces - Boston.com

    [When the Associated Press announced its annual Coach of the Year award on Sunday, the breakdown of votes went like this: Mike Smith 23.5, Tony Sparano 22.5, Jeff Fisher 3 and Bill Belichick 1. From a New England perspective, that led to the following question: Which one of the 50 voters selected Belichick?

    Turns out it was Bob Costas. In a phone interview with the Globe, Costas was asked about the vote. His answer was included in Tuesday’s editions of the Boston Globe, and it’s posted here as well:

    “I didn’t think he would win, but I thought he deserved a nod for what might have been the best, or certainly one of the best coaching jobs of his career,” Costas said. “He loses [Tom] Brady, and it’s not just losing Brady, but also that [Matt] Cassel basically never played. It’s not the same thing as losing Johnny Unitas and you have Earl Morrall. He brought the kid along. ]
