Wesleyan's "Other Coach Belichick" Featured on ESPN

Division III Wesleyan University head women's lacrosse coach Amanda Belichick was featured recently by ESPN's Rick Reilley for their website.

The daughter of New England Patriots head coach (and frequent sideline visitor in the lacrosse world) Bill, Belichick was (like her father) a starter and captain at Wesleyan. The piece features interviews with her father as well as folks around her program including assistants and players, comparing and contrasting her style with her famous father.

The Belichick family could be argued as one of the most prolific in sports these days, as Amanda's grandfather Steve was a longtime coach for the Navy football team and her brother Steven is an assistant to her father with the Patriots.

Belichick was also featured in October on ESPNW after taking the job at Wesleyan after a stint as an assistant under Alexis Venechanos at Ohio State.
