Bill Belichick Revokes Some Team Privileges of Tom Brady’s Trainer

New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick recently revoked some of the special privileges that had been given to Tom Brady’s longtime trainer and business partner, Alex Guerrero, according to a report by The Boston Globe.

The newspaper reported that Belichick reversed course “weeks ago” and that Guerrero is no longer permitted to travel on the team’s plane or have access to the sidelines like he has in recent years. The move has “created some friction” within the organization, according to The Boston Globe.

Belichick declined comment when asked about a possible rift with Guerrero during a radio interview Monday. “Yeah, I’m not really going to get into that,” he told WEEI.

Brady skirted a similar question when asked about Guerrero on the same station.

“I don’t have any comment on that,” Brady said Monday, “other than to say Alex, it’s been well-documented, has been a huge part of what I do and I’m so fortunate to have him not only as a friend, but with everything that we’ve been able to do together.”

ESPN’s Adam Schefter said on WEEI last week that he had “heard whispers” about “some sort of issue” between Belichick and Guerrero this season.
