Tom Brady Praises Bill Belichick Following Coaching Career MilestoneKirby Lee - USA TODAY Sports

Although in the midst of a rather inauspicious start to his 2022 season with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Tom Brady took some time on Monday to praise his former head coach in New England after reaching a career milestone.

Bill Belichick moved into second place on the NFL win list, surpassing George Halas with 325 total between the regular and postseason.

Speaking on the Let’s Go podcast with co-host Jim Gray, Brady provided a lengthy, full of praise reflection on the career of Belichick.

“Well, again, a remarkable achievement by him and what he’s gone through in his coaching career in as many years as he’s been coaching and preparing his teams, he’s so deserving of the award,” Brady said. “And he’s been an amazing coach that I got to play for 20 years. He always has his team prepared. He works incredibly hard, and he’s incredibly deserving of all the accolades that go along with it. I’m really happy for him and none of his success really surprises me, getting a first-hand view of what he put into it, every week, for 20 years that I was there with him.”

Gray then asked Brady to give his thoughts on what the achievement might mean to Belichick.

“I think it means a lot to him,” Brady replied. “He is a historian of the game. I remember when I was there, we talked about Chicago Bears-Green Bay Packers. There were a lot of history lessons he would give the team to give you perspective on the history of football, history of coaching, history of playing, history of rivalries and games, and the founding of NFL teams because we all love football. And he’s gonna go down as the greatest coach of all time. He’s done an incredible job, certainly with the Patriots, and he learned a lot over the years with the Giants, the Jets, and the (Cleveland) Browns, his history goes way back.
“You should feel good about those things. It’s a lifetime achievement award, as well, and he’s put a lot into it. And he’s taught a lot of people the game of football in a very detailed way. He believes in the fundamentals. He believes in techniques. He believes in preparation, hard work, discipline, toughness, all the things that are sustainable over time, and they’re all great lessons to learn in life, too. He’s an amazing coach, and again, I was very lucky to play for him all those years.”

Despite going separate ways two years ago, Brady continues to share a deep admiration for the coach from his first 20 seasons and six Super Bowls.
