Bill Belichick’s mother Jeannette passes away at 98 years old

The NFL season can be a rollercoaster.

And for Bill Belichick, he’s already experiencing the highs and lows, and it’s only week 2. Belichick’s mother, Jeannette, died from natural causes late Monday night in Annapolis, Md., a source confirmed Tuesday evening. She was 98.

Belichick had some very nice words to say about his mother in a recent book release:

Via NY Post:

“Jeannette and Steve Belichick married in August of 1950 after meeting at Hiram College in Ohio in the ’40s, per ESPN. Jeannette, who graduated from Hiram in 1942, taught Spanish and French there, according to the school, while Steve coached football, basketball and track.

Bill Belichick made a donation to the school in 2015 to honor his parents’ legacies there. The undisclosed gift established an “Olympic Training Center” bearing Steve’s name, a reading room in the school library bearing Jeannette’s name and the Jeannette Munn Belichick ’42 Endowed Fund, which supports the library and other school programs.”

Bill Belichick’s press conference has been postponed until tomorrow morning after the passing of his mother, Jeannette.

Condolences to the entire Belichick family.
