While other coaches' names have been batted around regarding the 2010 NFL Coach of the Year award, it comes to no surprise that a day after the announcement of Tom Brady's award, (2010 NFL Offensive Player of the Year), his coach was named Coach of the Year as well. Most presume the MVP award to also be on it's way to Tom Brady's trophy case.
Belichick lead his team to a 14-2 record and his 8th division title as the New England coach. He did all that while revamping the offense and tutoring a young defense-the side of the ball with 6 starters aged 24 or younger. This season has, in fact been recognized by many analysts as his greatest work ever given both of these factors, and it earned him and his entire staff a trip to the Pro Bowl in Hawaii as well, where 4 members of that same defense joined him.
Despite their surprisingly early exit from the playoffs, the Patriots are well on their way to sweeping most of the regular season awards after another record breaking season under Bill Belichick. The offense became not only the stingiest when it came to turnovers in the league, but also in league history recording only 10 turnovers as a team throughout the entire season. This was truly one of the greatest regular season performances by a team in league history, and it's good to see them being rewarded as that now.
