Belichick Notches Win 300, May Coach Into His 70s: Bill Belichick said a decade ago he didn't plan to coach into his 70s. Now he's 67 and just won his 300th game, putting him 47 behind Don Shula's all-time record, and is having a rethink. "When I said it, maybe I didn't know what 70 felt like," he said on his weekly WEEI radio show. "So I'm not really sure if that's an accurate statement today or not. At the time, I didn't feel that way. Now that I'm closer to that age, I don't know."

The Hoodie only needs 47 wins to match Shula, seems like a number he could reach around his 70th birthday. Andy Reid is a distant second among active coaches at 212, at 61 already I don't see him reaching much past 300 unless Mahomes turns into the next TB12, and no other active coach is even at 150.

Hey, Bill, 70 wasn't too bad, but when you add a few more years to it, it's not so great. I can give you a few tips on how to survive it.
