One of the risks of hiring your family members to work for you is that you might have to fire them someday.

That's a risk Bill Belichick is willing to take, as he's already hired both of his sons to be his assistant coaches on the New England Patriots. And according to former NFL coach Charlie Weis, Belichick wouldn't hesitate to can either of them if necessary.

Weis, who served as Belichick's first offensive coordinator with the Patriots from 2000-2004, believes Belichick would fire his sons if he had to.

Bill's son Stephen has worked as an assistant coach for New England since 2012 and is currently the outside linebackers coach. His younger brother, Brian, also works for the Patriots as the safeties coach and has been with the team since 2016.

Both have contributed to multiple Super Bowl championships for New England, so neither appears to be in danger of being let go anytime soon. But if it came to that, Weis believes Belichick would pull the trigger.

While many people would have a hard time firing their kin, Belichick has developed a reputation for ultimately doing what's best for the team and not letting sentimentality get in the way, even when it comes to his relatives. His sons better be careful because just like everyone else on the Patriots, their jobs aren't guaranteed.
