Following the New England Patriots historical Super Bowl victory over the Atlanta Falcons, head coach Bill Belichick passed Chuck Noll as the first coach to ever win five Super Bowl titles. In classic Belichick fashion, he turned the attention to his team.

“The most important thing tonight is the team win,” Belichick said. “I am happy for our team, our players and our organization. Everybody worked so hard for this. The only reason I am here is because of what our players did, what our assistant coaches and coordinators did, but Chuck Noll is a tremendous coach. A tremendous legacy. I coached against Chuck in his final game. I always admired Chuck and his style. The way his teams played. It is an honor to even be mentioned in the same sentence with Chuck Noll. Tonight is really about our team. It is not about some record or something like that. It is about what our team accomplished. They deserve to be champions. They earned it tonight.”

While Belichick can downplay it all day, fans and media alike will be calling him the best coach of all-time. After all, many were saying this before Sunday’s contest, this just puts a stamp on it.
