ESPN reports that Bill Belichick and the New England Patriots will "part ways" after 24 seasons and six Super Bowls.

Bill Belichick and the Patriots have ended their relationship after 24 years, marking the end of their partnership.

Belichick, who has led New England to six Lombardi Trophies and has been with the team since 2000, will leave after a disappointing season.

 Belichick's tenure with New England has been marked by success and controversies, including Spygate.

Despite a record of 333 wins, including playoff victories, Belichick has reached the highest record in history with 178 defeats.

Matthew Slater, a special teams player and team captain, is expected to retire after a career that includes 10 Pro Bowl selections and three Super Bowl victories.

While the game was going on, Julian Edelman, a former player for the Patriots, voiced his admiration for Bill Belichick.

The Patriots won 17 of 19 AFC East titles, 11 division titles in a row, 13 AFC championship games, and six Super Bowls from 2001 to 2019. 

After losing five of six games in 2023, the Patriots started poorly, losing 35 points to the Dallas Cowboys and 34 points to the New Orleans Saints. 

Belichick's poor firsts this season led to speculation about Robert Kraft firing him during the season.
