Bill Belichick memes have almost become as famous as Belichick himself.

As the head coach of the New England Patriots, Belichick forged the most successful partnership in league history with quarterback Tom Brady, dominating the league for two decades. Along the way, Belichick’s bold coaching style – and more importantly, his own personal quirks – have birthed multiple popular memes over the years.

Patriots fans are surely familiar with most, if not all the best Belichick memes. They represent the coach at his best. He certainly wasn’t at his best over his final few years in New England, but that should not overshadow all the iconic moments Belichick has delivered for fans – and of course, the jokes to go with them.

Frankly, Bill Belichick memes should make a comeback in 2024. He’s almost certainly going to a team with more talent, so it wouldn’t be surprising if there were more positive Belichickian moments going forward.

So, you can expect these memes to start popping up again in the near future. Here is the definitive list of Belichick memes to know for your next internet joke…

  • The Orange Juice Photo

    Football insider Jeff Howe ought to be collecting royalties on this one. Howe magically produced arguably THE Belichick meme when he snapped him at the perfect time sipping a glass of orange juice. Ever since then, whenever Belichick got himself a W in any way, shape or form, you saw this all over Twitter:

    You can be sure that you’ll be having breakfast with Bill again at some point.

  • The “Stone Cold” Steve Austin Music

    Patriots fans know this all-too-well, mainly from off-season moves and trade rumors. A player is available? Here comes Bill. Whomever added the “Stone Cold” Steve Austin music gets a chef’s kiss.

  • The Binoculars

    This one’s a little simplier, but the same concept as the “Stone Cold” one. There’s a player out there that might be of interest, so Belichick’s doing a little “Oh lookie here” with his binoculars. A tried-and-true classic Belichick meme.

  • The Dog

    Perhaps some New England fans don’t find this one particularly funny, because the Patriots’ drafting hasn’t been so great in recent years. But it was a nice, light humorous moment from Belichick himself – and we know those are rare – to plop his dog Nike down at the computer during draft night for the TV cameras. And yet another Belichick meme was born. The beauty of this one is that it doesn’t even need to be Belichick-centric in its use.

  • The Rings

    Belichick went viral before Super Bowl LIV between the Chiefs and 49ers, when he appeared in a pregame ceremony and flashed all his Super Bowl rings to literally the world. An all-time flex by an all-time coach.

  • The Ripped Hoodie

    Belichick’s cutoff hoodie and disheveled Patriots gear have become such a part of him that they transcend memes in the first place. But there have certainly been moments that the clothing became part of the fun. Like when Belichick sat down for a video conference in 2020 and looked as unkempt as ever. It doesn’t look like he’s got a hoodie on here, but he might as well…

  • The Tablet Slam

    This one has no particular defining moment, but it’s perhaps the defining moment of Belichick’s frequent struggles with technology and equipment. No piece of gadgetry was on the receiving end of more Belichick abuse on the Patriots’ sideline than that poor Microsoft Surface tablet.
