Logan Ryan perfectly explains what it’s like playing for Bill Belichick, who originally appeared on NBC Sports Boston

What is it like to be coached by Bill Belichick?

The New England Patriots head coach isn’t the easiest guy to play for. But there’s no coach in the NFL who teaches fundamentals and situational football better than Belichick. His more than five decades of experience in the sport is also a great help – there aren’t many scenarios he hasn’t seen.

The results also speak for themselves.

Belichick has won six Super Bowl titles as a head coach — all with the Patriots — and two more (1986, 1990) as defensive coordinator for the New York Giants. His 31 playoff wins are 11 more than any other head coach in league history.

Logan Ryan played for Belichick and the Patriots from 2013 to 2016. In those four seasons, Ryan won two Super Bowl titles and the Patriots made the AFC Championship Game four times.

Ryan gave a great insight into what it’s really like to play under Belichick during an appearance Monday on the NFL Network show Good Morning Football.

“First of all, I loved being coached by Bill Belichick. I enjoyed it. I know not everyone can do this. But the way he treated a freshman and the way he treated Tom Brady was in some ways quite similar to how you get what you put in,” Ryan said. “And I’ve gone with that to do, really. He was very monotonous. I found him funny. We always joked. But he didn’t play favourites. And I think when you see these coaches, you want them — one to be themselves. And the stuff that Bill’s wearing, like Bill’s speaking, is Bill Belichick, right? He doesn’t copy anyone. And you want to treat everyone fairly. And I think that’s what Bill is doing.”

Ryan also shared some great stories that illustrated what Belichick is like as a coach. Check them out in the video below:

Despite winning so many Super Bowl titles, there are still a few records for Belichick to chase before he retires.

One of them is the all-time record for regular-season wins. He is 30 behind legendary Miami Dolphins coach Don Shula. Belichick is 18 behind Shula with all-time wins (regular season and playoffs combined).

Breaking these records will not come easily to Belichick. The Patriots took a step backwards in 2022 and missed the playoffs. The AFC East has also improved in the off-season and the conference as a whole is super competitive. Bringing the Patriots into the postseason in 2023 would probably be one of his most impressive accomplishments in the last 10 years.
