Tom Brady and Bill Belichick, widely regarded as one of the most successful player-coach duos in American sports history, faced strains in their relationship toward the end of Brady’s tenure with the New England Patriots.

In a forthcoming 10-part series on Apple TV+ delving into the Patriots dynasty, Brady, the esteemed quarterback with seven Super Bowl victories (six with New England), shed light on his dynamic with his former coach.

Discussing the hardships endured under Belichick, Brady, aged 46, shared insights in “The Dynasty: New England Patriots,” scheduled for release on Friday, February 16.

Reflecting on their two-decade partnership, Brady expressed his decision not to extend his contract with New England, even if he desired to play until age 50. “Based on how things had gone, I wasn’t going to sign up for more of it,” he remarked, as reported by The Athletic.

Despite the discordant conclusion, Brady expressed gratitude for his time with Belichick, aged 71, upon departing the Patriots in 2020. During his illustrious 20-year tenure with the team, Brady garnered three MVP awards.

In an Instagram post upon his departure, Brady thanked his teammates, coaches, executives, and the entire Patriots organization for their commitment to winning and fostering a culture of excellence.

The documentary also features other former players’ criticisms of Belichick and the Patriots’ culture. Wide receiver Matthew Slater described playing under Belichick as “brutal,” while Rob Gronkowski recounted moments of reluctance to enter the team’s facility. Additionally, former wide receiver Wes Welker likened Brady’s treatment to that of an abused dog.

Team owner Robert Kraft offered insights into the quarterback-coach dynamic, acknowledging Brady’s sensitivity and his desire for Belichick’s approval.

Following the 2020 season, Brady signed with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, swiftly leading them to a Super Bowl victory under a lucrative two-year, $50 million deal. Meanwhile, Belichick parted ways with the Patriots after the recent season, remaining open to coaching opportunities elsewhere.
