Bill Belichick Joining 'Inside The NFL' For 2024 Season

Well, it didn't take long for Bill Belichick to find work. Interestingly, the man who seems to despise the NFL media is joining the NFL media.

It's true, as the CW Network has announced that the New England Patriots coaching legend will be among the analysts on its Inside the NFL studio show, starting this upcoming season.

But wait. There's more.

"Belichick, who coached the New England Patriots to six Super Bowl titles during his 24 years at the helm, will also appear on the ManningCast during ESPN's Monday Night Football," ESPN wrote. "Belichick also joined The Pat McAfee Show for its NFL draft coverage in April and is scheduled to appear weekly on the show during the NFL season."

Belichick became famous for his short, curt and often annoyed answers during press conferences. He rarely smiled.

That will all change now, he suggested. He will join Ryan Clark, Chad Johnson and Chris Long as part of the panel of analysts.

"I'm thrilled to join my new team at NFL Films and to work on such a historic television franchise," he said in a statement. "I've always appreciated 'Inside the NFL's' depth of analysis, and I hope to bring the same detailed insight to The CW by talking real football with real pros — Ryan, Chris and Chad — this coming season."

Inside the NFL is produced by NFL Films and is entering its 48th season.

"While Belichick was infamous for his short answers and refusing to engage with reporters while he was a coach, the times he has been revealing and forthcoming have often been on shows or pieces produced by NFL Films," ESPN wrote.

"Belichick was nominated for a Sports Emmy for Outstanding Studio Analyst for his work on the 2019 NFL Films series 'NFL 100 All-Time Team,' which aired on NFL Network."
