Years ago, Bill Belichick said on NFL Network's, "A Football Life: Bill Belichick," he didn't want to be like Marv Levy and coach into his 70s.

Listen to your team news NOW.

Given how little Belichick talks about his future and contract, this was really the only comment people had to go on -- until Monday.

Appearing on Ordway, Merloni & Fauria, Belichick left the door open to coaching past the age of 70.

"When I said it, maybe I didn't know what 70 felt like," he said. "So I'm not really sure if that's an accurate statement today or not. At the time, I didn't feel that way. Now that I'm closer to that age, I don't know."

Belichick, who is 67 years old, picked up career win No. 300 Sunday against the Browns.

Perhaps Belichick has his eyes on breaking Don Shula's record of 347 career wins. If that is the case, Belichick would obviously have to coach into his 70s.

Belichick currently seems in a good place with the Patriots organization and has his two sons, Brian and Steve, on the staff.
