Will Bill Belichick attend Tom Brady’s Patriots Hall of Fame induction ceremony?

Belichick did not leave on good terms, meaning his presence at the ceremony has been questioned.

NFL teams snub 'GOAT' Bill Belichick

Legendary quarterback Tom Brady will take his spot in the team’s Hall of Fame this week (Wednesday, June 12, at 7 p.m. ET / 4 p.m. PT.) when he is finally inducted into the legendary group of NFL players.

The Patriots, who have finally released details regarding the event which will be held at Gillette Stadium, want the thousands of fans who managed to get a ticket to have collected their gift bags and be in their seats by 6:30 p.m. for a 7 p.m. start; the ceremony is expected to go until around 9:30 p.m. Boston comedian Bill Burr will be delivering the opening monologue to get the ceremony going.

This time around, things have changed for how the Hall of Fame process normally works. Typically, players must wait four years before they can be inducted, but Patriots chairman and CEO Robert Kraft announced in September that Brady’s grace period was set to be waived.


Who will be attending Tom Brady’s Patriots Hall of Fame induction ceremony?

The Athletic reports that the Patriots are expecting “more than 200 of his former teammates to return to Foxboro for the event along with dozens of coaches and some A-list celebrities Brady has befriended”.

The team is expected to present a panel of former teammates who will all take turns to share stories about Brady, his career and their time together both on the field and beyond.

"Special guests" who will participate in the ceremony:

  • David Andrews
  • Drew Bledsoe
  • Deion Branch
  • Matt Cassel
  • Patrick Chung
  • Julian Edelman
  • Kevin Faulk
  • Rob Gronkowski
  • Brian Hoyer
  • Dan Koppen
  • Ty Law
  • Logan Mankins
  • Devin McCourty
  • Willie McGinest
  • Randy Moss
  • Rob Nikovich
  • Matthew Slater
  • Wes Welker
  • James White
  • Vince Wilfork

In short, yes, Bill Belichick will be there. All media reports say that the former coach will attend the ceremony with The Athletic also claiming that he will also take the microphone and share his stories of Brady, which will certainly be worth tuning in for. It will be his first time in front of Patriots fans since his final game as head coach of the Patriots.

In 24 seasons under Belichick, the New England Patriots went on an astounding run of success. They won 17 AFC East division titles, made 13 appearances in the AFC Championship Game, and appeared in nine Super Bowls, winning six of them.
