When Amanda Belichick's father brought work home, it didn't mean the kids had to be quiet and that his office door was closed.
"I remember being in Cleveland in elementary and middle school and he'd be cutting up plays, organizing them, old school, and I remember doing it with him," she recalled this week.
When your dad is the coach of the Cleveland Browns and in the early stages of a career that eventually would yield five Super Bowl appearances and three titles with the New England Patriots, this might leave a slightly larger impression than, say, helping staple papers.
Funny thing is, Belichick, now the interim coach of the Wesleyan women's lacrosse team, never imagined following her father, Bill, into the profession. But sometimes, your life's work finds you.
