New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady reportedly considered “divorcing” the only NFL coach he ever has had, Bill Belichick, during this past off-season. A new book on Belichick’s life claims Brady had had enough of his coach and wanted out after the 2017 season, after five Super Bowl wins together. “If you’re married 18 years to a grouchy person who gets under your skin and never compliments you, after a while you want to divorce him,” a source with knowledge of the Brady-Belichick relationship told the book’s author last year. “Tom knows Bill is the best coach in the league, but he’s had enough of him. If Tom could, I think he would divorce him.” Brady was reportedly so disillusioned with his coach that he still wasn’t certain in late March if he would return to the Patriots, but he felt “locked in” after Belichick moved backup quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo to San Francisco. “But in the end, even if he wanted to, Brady could not walk away from the game, and he could not ask for a trade,” author Ian O'Connor wrote.
