Robert Kraft, Bill Belichick React To Dante Scarnecchia’s Retirement

Patriots offensive line coach Dante Scarnecchia decided to retire, and he will be remembered as one of the best assistant coaches in the National Football League. Scarnecchia made his decision on Tuesday. Patriots owner Robert Kraft and head coach Bill Belichick reacted to Scarnecchia’s retirement.

Scarnecchia is a respected assistant coach in the Patriots organization. He earned words of praise from Kraft and Belichick.

“Dante Scarnecchia has been unbelievable in every way. As a coach, he was extraordinarily talented at teaching his players and bringing the most out of each of them,” Kraft said in a statement.

“Dante put everything he had into helping his players achieve their maximum potential — the mark of a great coach. His contributions to our team and to the game of football are unprecedented over the last four decades. Yet even more remarkable is the impact Dante has had on countless players, coaches and staff members who have walked through our doors. He modeled the principles he believed in through his hard work, diligence and integrity. He held himself accountable. He trained alongside his players. He treated everyone with respect.

“There truly is no way to sum up the incredible career he’s had, the positive impact he’s made on our franchise or how much he will be missed. We are forever grateful for Dante and wish him the absolutely best in his next chapter, along with his lovely wife Susan and his family. The New England Patriots are better because of Dante Scarnecchia, and he will always have a home with us.”

Coach Belichick reacts to the retirement

Coach Belichick respects Scarnecchia and his incredible experience.
“It was a privilege to coach with Dante for so long,” he said. “I knew that long before his initial retirement and throughout the second act of continued excellence. Dante is among the very best assistant coaches ever.”

This leaves a hole in the Patriots coaching staff. How will the Patriots fill this void? They have already lost members of the coaching staff. Belichick will have to think twice before hiring someone. They missed the chance to win a title, and they have to try harder in the upcoming season.
