The Pat McAfee Show Bill Belichick Screen grab: The Pat McAfee Show

The 2024 NFL Draft marked Bill Belichick’s first gig as a member of the media.

It looks like he already has his next one lined up.

At the conclusion of The Pat McAfee Show‘s Draft Spectacular on Thursday night, the 6-time Super Bowl champion head coach and former All-Pro punter discussed the possibility of Belichick being a reoccurring guest this fall. By the end of the conversation, the two had seemingly announced that Belichick will indeed be joining The Pat McAfee Show on Mondays throughout the NFL season.

“Is there any chance I could be on your show during the fall?” Belichick asked after McAfee showered him with praise for his on-screen performance.

“Like Mondays?” McAfee replied.

“Yeah, maybe something like that,” the 3-time Coach of the Year replied.

Belichick went on to explain that he’s been fired twice in Detroit before and wasn’t in a rush for it to happen a third time.

“How about you get hired?” McAfee replied. “How about every Monday this fall?”

The 72-year-old responded with high five and a handshake, all but announcing that the partnership was official.

“Let’s see if we can work that out,” Belichick said slyly.

“Yeah, let’s see,” McAfee replied with a knowing nod and smile.

While their words might read noncommittal, both Belichick and McAfee were speaking in a manner that made it sound like an agreement has already been reached. Landing Belichick as a weekly guest would obviously be a huge get for the ESPN midday show, as the former New England Patriots head coach drew rave review for his media debut during the draft, thanks in part to his chemistry with the show’s host.

As for the rest of his media plans, Belichick is expected to sign a deal with Omaha Productions and become a reoccurring guest on of ESPN’s “ManningCast” Monday Night Football simulcast with Peyton and Eli Manning. He’s also reportedly in talks to host his own show in addition to plans to write a book on leadership.

Suffice to say, Belichick won’t be difficult to find this fall. And if his media debut during the draft is any indication, that’s a good thing.
