Appearing on Dale & Holley with Keefe on Monday, Bill Belichick debunked a lot of what was presented in the ESPN story last week, which painted a picture of friction within the organization between Belichick, Robert Kraft, Tom Brady and Alex Guerrero.

Belichick was asked what his relationship is like with Kraft and Brady?

“Great, great," Belichick said. "18 years with Tom and 22 with Robert. It’s been great. I appreciate everything that Robert has done for me, the opportunities he’s given me and the support. I’ve been pretty lucky to have Tom as the quarterback for those 18 years, playing for 17. He’s a great player to coach and he’s done a lot for this team. He’s been a huge help for me personally.

"I have a great relationship with both Robert and Tom, and I would throw in there, since it was part of the article, I feel like I have a good relationship with Alex, too.”

The story detailed how Belichick has banned Guerrero from the sidelines and from team flights this season, and also implied because of his presence Brady has changed in recent years.

“I think we’re talking about a lot of inaccuracies here," he said. "I respect Alex and I think I have a good professional relationship with him. I can’t speak for him, but I think he would say the same thing.”

So, why exactly did Guerrero's role change this year?

“We have relationships with a lot of people in the medical area," he said. "Lots of consultants. Lots of people that are specialists. Lots of people that do many different things. We try and have working relationships with multiple individuals, multiple groups in multiple areas and we try and structure those as best we can."
