WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump will present one of the nation’s highest civilian honors to Bill Belichick, the football coach of the New England Patriots and the only coach to win six Super Bowl titles.


The presentation of the Presidential Medal of Freedom is expected Thursday, a White House official confirmed on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the matter publicly.


Belichick said afterward he was not a political person and that he had “a friendship and loyalty to Donald.”


Trump has selected a string of sports figures and political backers for the award of late.


The Bill Belichick Foundation provides scholarship and grant funds to help underprivileged youth participate in sports programs.
