Belichick on 1999 Dan Leberfeld

Q)Was the press conference in 1999 when you resigned as Jets head coach the strangest press conference you have ever done? You were a lot younger –

BB: What’s that supposed to mean?

Q: I am just saying you were younger, it was a long time ago.

BB: I’m sure you were younger in ’99 too. Any other breaking stories we have going here?

Q: I am wondering if that was the strangest press conference you’ve ever done.

BB: I don’t really rank them but it wasn’t a great situation all the way around, with Bill [Parcells] resigning the day before and me resigning the day after that and all that. That’s all water under the bridge.

Q: Do you ever look back on that?

BB: No. Honestly, I don’t spend a lot of time looking back on that, no.

Q: It was good TV.

BB: At that point in time, that situation, I did what I felt like I needed to do and I don’t have any regrets about that. Certainly a lot of things could have been handled differently or whatever but anyway. It doesn’t matter now.
