Belichick has a weekly appearance on WEEI’s “The Greg Hill Show,” and was unusually chatty Tuesday. He opened up about a few things previously untouched upon, but notably skirted the opportunity to put some shine on Mayo when asked how he’s progressed as a coach.

“I think all of our defensive coaches have done a really good job,” Belichick said, as transcribed by WEEI’s Mike Kadlick. “Collectively, they work together. It’s hard to single everybody out because they work so well together as a total group. They — overall, the players, the coaches — have had a good chemistry and have battled through some tough situations with a great mindset. I think all of those coaches deserve their share of the credit on that.”



I suspect Bill knew he was won the way out and that Mayo was a threat to become his successor.
Not a great look for Bill if you ask me. Seems petty and not cool. He could have been more supportive.
 
Mayo was in line to replace him, there might have been a little bit of resentment going on.
The Patriots have often designated an assistant as the "Assistant Head Coach". Josh had that after his return. Scar had that for many years. It's nothing new. Not sure how any succesion plan was written into their contracts, but the title I am sure meant something.

He knew at least one year ago ... nothing new here.

LOL. its New England...people are not happy unless they are unhappy. Its a good hire and many coaches/GMs around the league said Mayo was the next up and comer in the head coaching ranks. Now on to hiring a GM and coaching staff. This is a real opportunity to rebuild/refresh the organization
