Bill's dad, Steve, and Jeanette became an item in 1940 after they met at Hiram College. While Jeanette taught French and Spanish, her partner was head coach of football, basketball, and track events. Steve died in 2005 at the age of 85. 

In 2015, Bill honored his folks by revisiting Hiram College and making a whopping donation, which led to the creation of the Jeanette Munn Belichick '42 Endowed Fund. His dad was also honored with the Coach Steve Belichick Olympic Training Center.
