Coaching tough guy Bill Belichick, winner of three of the past four Super Bowls, left no doubt yesterday. His father was tougher. Steve Belichick, the longtime Navy assistant football coach and scout extraordinaire, was remembered during funeral services at the Naval Academy Chapel as flinty tough, indefatigable and fair-minded, not only by his successful son, but also by his former players and fellow coaches. "Steve knew football inside and out, plus he cared about you as a person," said former Navy and Detroit Lions coach Rick Forzano.

The story has been told many times over the past three decades, as Bill Belichick went from being an up-and-coming defensive coordinator in the NFL to an unsuccessful first-time head coach with the Cleveland Browns to eventually becoming one of the most accomplished coaches in league history. No matter where and how Belichick's story unfolds, it always begins in Annapolis. It also begins with his father, Steve, a college football coach who moved the family there from North Carolina to work at the Naval Academy in 1956.

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. --Steve Belichick was a football man - specifically, a college football man - and Saturday he did what college football men do. He went to see his beloved Navy Midshipmen - a team he helped coach for 33 years - defeat Temple in the afternoon and then he settled in front of his television set to watch another football game Saturday night. It was, his son said, "what he normally does Saturday night." But this Saturday night was different. "His heart just stopped beating," said son, Bill Belichick, head coach of the New England Patriots.

If you start on the visiting team's sideline at tonight's AFC championship game, and trace the roots far enough - from the stadium in Foxborough, Mass., past his house in Nantucket, through old jobs in Cleveland and New York - you'll eventually end up at a handsome two-bedroom house in a quiet, secluded corner of Annapolis. For a half century, this was a multilingual home. The lady of the house spoke four languages, even taught Spanish at Hiram College in Ohio a lifetime ago. And the two men spoke a language all their own, a hybrid of X's and O's and coachspeak that usually only the two Belichick men understood completely.

ANNAPOLIS RELIVING THE glory of his own football days through son Bill isn't the kind of vicarious game Steve Belichick likes to play. He's elated over the appointment and realizes the Cleveland Browns wouldn't have entrusted head coaching responsibilities to his little boy of yesteryear unless they believed he was totally qualified.The Belichicks, ages 72 and 38, have an ideal relationship. "The only advice I gave him when he went into coaching," says his father, "was never to talk about how you used to do it with the team you just left.

IT MAY NOT have been the wisest thing for Maryland to have scheduled 21 1/2 -point favorite Michigan, which the Terps visit Saturday, but it's hard to beat as a money maker. Maryland will take home $320,000 from Ann Arbor. The series, which ends with this game, was arranged when Carl James was Maryland's athletic director -- and he has been gone for 11 years. The Wolverines won't be back on the schedule for a while. Maryland already has some opponents signed for 2007.* New York Giants defensive coordinator Bill Belichick, son of longtime Navy coaching aide Steve Belichick, is still taking bows for the job his unit did last Sunday in holding Miami and dangerous Dan Marino without a touchdown, winning 20-3.
