Ernie Adams, Bill Belichick’s Right Hand Man, Retires

Ernie Adams has announced his retirement.

Adams was the Patriots’ director of football research. He had worked in the NFL for over 45 years, starting with the Patriots in 1975.

He’s been friends with Bill Belichick since they were kids.

Belichick announced that last weekend’s NFL draft would be Adams’ last. He allowed Adams to hand-pick the team’s final pick in the 2021 draft, the final pick during Adams’ tenure.
