Report: Fine looming for Bill Belichick
By James Walker
New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick's wallet is expected to get a little lighter on Wednesday. Steve Wyche of NFL Network reports the league will fine Belichick later today for grabbing an official at the end of Sunday's 31-30 loss to the Baltimore Ravens.
Belichick said he wanted an explanation for Baltimore's game-winning field goal and whether the kick can be reviewed. He grabbed an official's arm while the ref was running off the field.
The fine could be a sizable one. Washington Redskins offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan was fined $25,000 this week for bad-mouthing an official. Belichick's fine could be larger than that.
