It was a record-breaking year for Bill Belichick and his Hoodie this season. The Hot Jacket, introduced in 2013 and Belichick recent fave, surpassed the infamous Gray Cutoff Hoodie as his most-worn game attire with the Patriots. Yes, Belichick will always be known for that Hoodie, but the truth is that he probably should be known for that short sleeved blue wind breaker just as much.
As soon as Belichick broke the record of games coached in the Hot Jacket, he didn’t wear it again the rest of the season. His record in the two faves are remarkably similar — in the Hot Jacket 43 games played for a record of 33-10, for the infamous Hoodie 42 games played for a 32-10 record. Expect Belichick to continue to add to that total next season in the early warm months.
The 2017 Gray Cut Hoodie was also introduced this year and saw action in five games, the most that he’s worn gray since 2014. This hoodie was a throwback to the original look, but was even more hacked up than the old version he’s known best for because now he’s cutting out the necks too along with the arms.
On the year Belichick’s Hoodie records breakdown as such:
- Hot Jacket — 8 games, 6-2
- 2017 Gray Cut Hoodie — 5 games, 4-1
- Winter Gear — 2 games, 2-0
- 2017 Blue Windbreaker — 1 game, 1-0
Now we wait to see what Belichick chooses to wear for the playoffs. With the crazy cold winter weather in New England lately it’s a good bet he’ll be donning his winter gear once again, but perhaps we will catch site of the 2017 Gray Cut Hoodie underneath. Together they’re a combined 6-1 on the season, and who would complain about seeing this ninja Belichick look once again?
