Bill Belichick Called Out For ‘Coaching Malpractice’ Wednesday Morning

4 Min Read

Bill Belichick has been called out for “coaching malpractice” by former NFL quarterback Robert Griffin III.

Griffin made the comments on Wednesday morning’s episode of ESPN’s “Get Up.” He was discussing the Patriots’ struggles this season, and he said that Belichick is to blame for the team’s problems.

“In Year Two, Bill Belichick messed up his young quarterback,” Griffin said. “When you give him a defensive coordinator and a special teams coordinator as his offensive coordinator and now he’s on his third coordinator in three years in the NFL, that is, to me, the epitome of coaching malpractice.”

Griffin was referring to the Patriots’ decision to hire Matt Patricia as their offensive coordinator in 2022. Patricia is a defensive coach, and he had no prior experience as an offensive coordinator.

The Patriots also fired Patricia after just one season, and they hired Joe Lombardi as their new offensive coordinator in 2023. Lombardi is a former quarterbacks coach, but he has also never been an offensive coordinator.

Griffin believes that Belichick’s decision to hire Patricia and Lombardi has hurt the development of Patriots quarterback Mac Jones. Jones is entering his third season in the NFL, and he has yet to take a step forward.

“Mac Jones is a talented quarterback,” Griffin said. “But he needs a competent offensive coordinator to help him develop. He’s had two offensive coordinators in two years, and that’s not good enough.”

Griffin’s comments come after the Patriots lost their first three games of the 2023 season. The Patriots have struggled on offense this season, and Jones has been inconsistent.


Griffin’s comments are sure to spark a debate among NFL fans. Some fans will agree with him that Belichick is to blame for the Patriots’ struggles, while others will think that Griffin is being too critical.

There is no doubt that Belichick has made some questionable decisions in recent years. He fired Josh McDaniels, who was one of the best offensive coordinators in the NFL, after the 2021 season. He also hired Patricia and Lombardi, who both had no prior experience as offensive coordinators.

It’s possible that Belichick’s decisions have hurt the development of Jones. Jones is a talented quarterback, but he needs a good offensive coordinator to help him reach his full potential.

However, it’s also important to note that the Patriots have other problems on offense besides Jones. The Patriots’ offensive line is struggling, and they don’t have a lot of weapons at wide receiver.

It’s also important to remember that Belichick is one of the greatest coaches in NFL history. He has won six Super Bowls with the Patriots, and he is known for his ability to develop quarterbacks.

What’s Next

It will be interesting to see how Belichick reacts to Griffin’s comments. Will he make any changes to his offensive coaching staff? Will he give Jones more time to develop?

It’s also important to note that the Patriots are just three games into the 2023 season. It’s still too early to say whether or not the Patriots are going to have a good season.

However, if the Patriots continue to struggle on offense, then Belichick may need to make some changes to his coaching staff.
