Bill Belichick joins ‘Inside the NFL’ analyst panel

Legendary former New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick is joining “Inside the NFL” this fall as an analyst.

Produced by NFL Films, the longtime show will air weekly on The CW network, launching Aug. 30 at 9 p.m. ET.

Belichick will join host Ryan Clark, two-time All-Pro wide receiver Chad Johnson and two-time Super Bowl champion defensive end Chris Long on the show’s panel.

“I’m thrilled to join my new team at NFL Films and to work on such a historic television franchise,” said Belichick, 72, who led the Patriots to six Super Bowl titles.

“I’ve always appreciated Inside the NFL’s depth of analysis, and I hope to bring the same detailed insight to The CW by talking real football with real pros — Ryan, Chris and Chad — this coming season.”

Belichick also won two Super Bowls as defensive coordinator of the New York Giants. The 2024 season will be his 50th working in the NFL.

“Bill Belichick joining ‘Inside the NFL’ is a true game-changer for this storied franchise and The CW,” Dennis Miller, network president, said in a statement. “Not only is he one of the most accomplished coaches in NFL history, but his knowledge and passion for football is truly unmatched.”

“Inside the NFL” will air for its 48th season. Its longtime home was HBO, followed by stops on Showtime and Paramount+ before landing at The CW before the 2023 season.

Belichick, in his first season post-coaching, also has booked weekly gigs this season on ESPN’s Pat McAfee Show and on the “Manningcast” alternate telecast of Monday Night Football on ESPN2.
