Bill Belichick Smiled a Total of Seven Times in Regular Season

Tyler BrookeSenior Analyst IINovember 2, 2016

New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick is usually a pretty serious guy. Rarely does he smile or crack jokes, as he usually prefers to remain emotionless—especially during his post-game press conferences.

But there are times where we do see Belichick smile, although they are quite rare. How rare, exactly?  According to Geoff Foster from The Wall Street Journal, Belichick smiled a grand total of seven times during press conferences in the regular season.

Belichick smiled in a total of five press conferences, including two where he managed a smirk twice.

Perhaps if the Patriots win the Super Bowl, we could see another smile or two from the head coach.
