Halberstam on Belichick

He follows the New England Patriots coach, from Belichick's Tennessee boyhood to his New England Superbowl victories.

Halberstam writes that the greatest influence on Belichick as a coach was his father, Steve, who spent 33 years scouting and coaching for the Naval Academy.

Steve Belichick passed away over the weekend at the age of 86.
