Bill Belichick confirmed on Monday that he will return to the New England Patriots for his 14th season with the franchise.

“I’ll be here,” Belichick announced toward the end of his season-ending press conference with the media at Gillette Stadium. “You’ll have to deal with me again next year. I know that’s disappointing for a lot of you. Until I’m told otherwise, I plan on being here.”

Belichick said he was proud of the Patriots' accomplishments this season.

“We won 13 games,” Belichick said of the 13-5 mark his team posted in 18 games. “We’re playing in the AFC championship game. Not a whole lot of teams are saying that. Our production.”
