Bill Belichick actually liked Gronk’s TD celebration on Sunday

He is human after all.

The ever-so-serious, down-to-business, head coach of the New England Patriots decided to have a little fun in his weekly interview with WEEI’s “Ordway, Merloni and Fauria.”

When speaking of highlights in the Patriots’ game against the Houston Texans this past Sunday, Bill Belichick pointed out one that resulted in some typical Rob Gronkowski theatrics.

Just over three minutes into the game, the Patriots defense forced a Texans’ fumble that lead to a Tom Brady-Rob Gronkowski connection for a 21-yard touchdown on a third-and-12 play.

“To be able to convert that (fumble) into a touchdown with a great play from Tom to Rob, and catch right on the goal line – can’t forget Rob’s dance after the touchdown to go with the spike…” Belichick said.

Belichick was then asked when the Patriots practice the dance moves that Gronk showed off on Sunday, and the head coach offered a playful answer.

“Yeah it must be somewhere – I haven’t seen that one – so it must be somewhere out of my sight, that’s OK.”
