Naturally, it drew reactions not just from within the NFL but outside as well.

Among those paying tribute to Belichick’s tenure with the Patriots was Boston Celtics head coach Joe Mazzulla, who wore a hoodie with the sleeves cut off — a nod to Belichick’s iconic look — to a press conference on Thursday.

“I have a reaction as a coach, as a friend, as one of the best coaches of all time and just what he’s been able to do,” Mazzulla said.
Thankful for the relationship that him and I have built.

Gotten to learn from him, gotten to talk to him, and to me, when you see things like yesterday — whether it’s Coach Belichick, whether it’s Coach [Nick] Saban — if coaching defines you it can be an unhealthy life.

It can be really stressful. You can be the best ever and there’s a shelf life on your career, there’s a shelf life on being with one particular team.”

Mazzulla’s Celtics lost 135-102 to the Milwaukee Bucks later that night.
