    Apparently, Hoover felt that Sullivan might have made a good FBI contact . . . until he became involved with the Patriots.

    The Globe has the rather fascinating story.

    They have several stories based on information released by the FBI (note: all the folks on whom the files were kept are deceased, so don't expect any juicy tidbits on Belichick :) ).

    I have heard Hoover taught BB a thing or two about espionage.

    Too bad, he could have worked for the Bulgers.
