    Want to see Bill Belichick angry? Talk about the Jets

    After the 1998 season, Jets owner Leon Hess gave Belichick $1 million to not consider any head coaching opportunities and to stick by Parcells' side. His contract contained a clause that immediately promoted him to Jets coach in the event Parcells was to step aside. Hess died on May 7, 1999. Parcells informed the Jets he was resigning as coach he was going to remain as GM moments after the Jets played Seattle in the final game of the '99 season.

    Belichick, by contract, was now the Jets head coach. One day after Parcells stepped down, so did Belichick. He wanted to go to New England to work for Robert Kraft. They had become friendly in the one year Belichick spent on Parcells staff with the Patriots in 1996. Kraft would have hired Belichick to replace Parcells in 1997 but he associated him with the stench still lingering from Parcells' ugly departure and wanted to make a clean break. Belichick accompanied Parcells to the Jets.

    But three years later, Belichick didn't want the Jets job. He wanted to get out of Parcells' shadow. The ownership competition was down to Woody Johnson and Charles Dolan and Belichick decided he would rather work for Kraft. His rambling news conference to announce he was quitting after just 24 hours as the Jets coach was one of the most memorable moments in NFL history. Belichick came off as a tortured soul and Jets president Steve Gutman seized on the opportunity to question Belichick's sanity.
    Of course, the Belichick-Jets relationship was forever destroyed by Spygate when former protégé Eric Mangini turned in Belichick for cheating by secretly taping the Jets defensive signals. Even though it's debatable how much the spying helped Belichick, and he will be a first ballot Hall of Famer five years after he retires, his record will forever be tarnished.

    Great respect for him having the courage to make his fight public. Hope it helps others who are in his shoes as well as others that know people in his shoes.
