Bill Belichick was born the son of a college and professional football scout. From his beginnings as an unheralded but intelligent player at to a feared defensive coach for the Giants, Patriots and Jets, Belichick reached the pinnacle of success in the NFL. When he took on the job of head coach for the Cleveland Browns in the early 1990's his star began to fade, as he was unable to resurrect a faltering program.
Fastforward to the late 1990's and Patriot owner Robert Kraft's faith that Belichick was the right man to bring success to the New England franchise. With savvy draft analysis, painstaking film break down of his team's opponents, and a knack for defensive game planning, Belichick created a winning system in New England. He looked for players willing to value team glory over individual accomplishments. For his efforts the Patriots achieved their way to three Super Bowl victories in the process.
