Bill Belichick on OMF reacts to compliment from Donald Trump


Last week, President Donald Trump gave Bill Belichick quite the compliment.

Appearing on The Hugh Hewitt Show, Trump said if he was in a military battle, he would ask the coach for advice.

"You know, if I ever had a military battle, I’d call up Belichick and say what do you think? What do you think? Give me a couple of ideas," Trump said.

During his weekly appearance with Ordway, Merloni & Fauria, Belichick was asked for his reaction to what the president said.

“A very nice compliment," he said. "I appreciate that. I am not sure — I am kind of a Navy guy, so I don’t know about being a general. I’d prefer being an admiral. I am flattered by that.

“But, I’ll just stick to coaching football.”
