As interim women's lacrosse coach, Belichick follows in her father Bill Belichick's '75 coaching footsteps

The Hartford Courant has published a profile of Amanda Belichick ’07, who returned to Wesleyan this fall as interim women’s lacrosse coach. Though, after graduating from Wesleyan with a history degree, she imagined leaving athletics behind for a career in education, Belichick ultimately followed in the coaching footsteps of her father, New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick ’75.

“To have the opportunity to lead something you care so much about is exciting,” Amanda Belichick said. “I have a lot of respect and pride in this program. I think the most important thing is that I had an incredible four years here. It’s really important for me to give the players the same incredible experience.”
