Coaches don’t seem to come as different as Sean McVay and Bill Belichick, but there’s a bond of common respect that brings them together.

And they express it via text.

McVay told Peter King of NBC’s Football Morning in America that he and Belichick would often text each other after games, after getting to know each other last year at the Scouting Combine.

“He was really great in the conversation we had, really enlightening,” McVay said. “This is wild: This season, he has basically texted me after every one of our games. After we beat Minnesota in September, he texted, ‘Man, you guys are really explosive and impressive and fun to watch. Congratulations—keep it rolling.’

“For him to even take the time to say congrats, it’s pretty cool. That’s one of the things I like about our business, our fraternity of coaches. As competitive as it is, guys find time to share when they can. I’m still young, still figuring it out. That stuff’s been really helpful to me.”

Belichick has long respected the guys who get inside football, and McVay’s grasp of offense (and team-building) is beyond his years. So the fact Belichick wants to talk to him isn’t necessarily unusual, even if the thought of the two bouncing messages back and forth like teens is.

  1. The fact that Bill knows that their is always and still stuff to be learned is mark to his sustained excellence

  2. Belichick trying to steal info lol.

    Bill will be texting with LaFleur next season👌


  3. Interesting, pull their text records and let’s see if they were giving each other insider information on other teams to help navigate their way to the Bowl.

  4. I`m surprised that Belichick is even someone who texts.totally different personalities during press conferences where Bill is a man of few words,whilst Sean can articulate precisely and in depth without pause. undoubtable that the best 2 head coaches in the NFL are in the Superbowl this year.

  5. BB is just pure class.

    It’s amazing how wrong the media and the world has it with him. The greatest GM and Coach ever, but also not a guy who advertises things when he’s just being genuine and doing the right thing.

  6. Oh oh, collusion.
    Goodell needs to step in.
    1 year suspension for both of them, and their teams lose a 1st round pick.
    Sounds fair to me.

    (and keep on ignoring the blown call in the Saints-Rams game)
