Inside Bill Belichick's resignation as the Jets' coach 20 years ago

On the morning of Jan. 4, 2000, Bill Belichick began one of the biggest days in his professional life on a treadmill in the New York Jets' weight room. There was nothing unusual about that; he was among a handful of coaches who liked to work up a sweat before attacking the daily grind of the NFL.

What happened next, though, was hardly routine.

After his workout, Belichick -- still in his Jets warm-up suit -- was spotted leaving the building in an overcoat, carrying a briefcase.

"I said to myself, 'That is one of the strangest things I've ever seen. There's something up,'" former Jets public relations director Frank Ramos recalled of Belichick's unusual garb and oddly timed exit.
