Bill Belichick Becomes 3rd NFL Head Coach Ever to Accumulate 300 Career Wins
The New England Patriots' 27-13 win over the Cleveland Browns on Sunday was a milestone victory for head coach Bill Belichick.
New England's eighth win in as many games this season marks the 300th career win for Belichick as a head coach, making him the third head coach to ever reach that milestone. Don Shula (347) and George Halas (424) are the two others to do such. Belichick earned 268 of those wins in the regular season and 31 in the postseason.
Belichick's career has come full circle to reach this milestone. His first win as a head coach came as a Cleveland Brown on Sept. 8, 1991 when his Browns defeated the Patriots 20-0. He now has earned his 300th win on the opposing sideline against his former team.
With plenty of wins ahead of him thanks to a great foundation in place in New England, Belichick should pass Shula on the list before he retires, which would make him the winningest head coach in NFL history.
