ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — Jeannette Belichick, the mother of New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick, has died. She was 98.
Patriots spokesman Stacey James said Belichick died Monday night of natural causes in Annapolis, Maryland.
Both Ohio natives, the former Jeannette Munn met Steve Belichick in the 1940s at Hiram College, where she taught French and Spanish and he was a football, basketball and track coach. They were married in 1950 and had their son, Bill, in 1952.
Following her husband’s assistant football coaching stints at Vanderbilt and North Carolina, the couple moved to Annapolis when Steve took a coaching job at Navy.
