Bill Belichick on Houston pursuit of Nick Caserio: “Water under the bridge”

The Texans wanted to hire the Patriots’ top personnel man this offseason. The Patriots didn’t let them.

As far as Patriots coach Bill Belichick is concerned, that’s the end of the story. (Until it isn’t.)

Via Phil Perry of NBCSportsBoston.com, Belichick was asked this morning about the Texans trying to make Nick Caserio their General Manager.

That’s all water under the bridge,” he replied.

Belichick also wasn’t biting on questions about Caserio’s responsibilities or status beyond this year, when his contract with the Patriots expires.

“I’m not talking about contracts, period,” Belichick said. “Never have and don’t plan to.”

Caserio appeared to want the job, but the Patriots opted to keep him under the terms of his previous deal during an offseason in which they had massive turnover on their coaching staff.

The Texans are leaving the seat open by not hiring a G.M. at all this year, which makes as much sense as anything about their pursuit of Caserio.

  1. Caserio’s contract doesn’t expire till AFTER next years draft… so basically he’ll be unable to contribute to the Texans till AFTER it really matters next year…..& that’s only IF he decides to take the job…..
    Not a smart way to fill the position by the Texans!!!

  2. Jeff Howe stated there is no strife between BB and Caserio and Caserio isn’t trying to force his way out. Sounds like the media latched onto Trollin Ben Volin.

  3. “water under the bridge” until we next meet…

    . . . then I’ll hang 50 on you, and make you look stupid. . . just like every time we play.

  4. “water under the bridge” How can any football fan not love and revere this guy? 31 other head coaches carry a grudge and let the media dictate a month long back and forth. belichick liberates his team from the quagmire in 2-3 seconds with only 4 words.

  5. “I’m not talking about contracts, period,” Belichick said. “Never have and don’t plan to.”

    Great example of why I like Bill.
    And why the media hates him.

  6. BB would be wise to let him go now and get a player or draft pick in return. Come next spring he’ll be gone anyway.

  7. It will be interesting to see how the pats do this year. They actually play more teams this year coming off bye weeks than they have the last 5 years. They play 3. I know you are thinking that’s a lot but the Eagles played 4 after they won the super bowl so the Patriots still getting some of those patriot breaks from the schedule makers.

    No way. Coaching staff currently way too thin. Not worth an unknown draft pick for a known, high quality person in Caserio…assuming he’s still on-board.

    IRRELEVANT….. doesn’t matter who or when or where the Pats playtheir opponents, they usually stoic beat them….. haven’t you been paying attention the last 18 years??!!?!!

  10. The Patriots play whoever is next, not their fault that next is not worthy. But let next beat the Patriots and it is like we are contenders… Ask Jarvis.
