This may be Bill Belichick’s most unexpected play call ever.
The New England Patriots head coach stepped off the gridiron and into the political field Wednesday, as he demanded the US take action in the recent dispute between Azerbaijan and Armenia.
The comments came as he was asked about how Acting Secretary of Defense Christopher Miller recently quoted his mantra, “Do your job,” in a letter to Department of Defense employees.
“Well, I really appreciate the kind words from Secretary Miller,” the Pats coach said in a video conference with Patriots reporters, according to CBS Boston. “When you consider the type of leadership that he’s shown throughout his career serving our country, it really means a lot. I’m flattered by the reference that he made.”
The Super Bowl-winning NFL strategist then tried his hand at a little global strategic thinking.
“I’ll just say, while while we’re on the subject, I read his point about combating traditional threats,” he said.
