The New York Daily News claimed in a Friday report that sources say the Patriots head coach “sees an opening” to become the next Giants coach, and might try to take advantage of the opportunity.

“I’m sure Bill knows this is his last chance to be the Giants coach,” a source described as close to Belichick told the newspaper Friday. “Bill sees an opening — an opening to get to the Giants.”

Before winning five Super Bowls with the Patriots, Belichick won two titles as defensive coordinator for the Giants.

In expected New York tabloid fashion, the Belichick story was splashed on the back page Saturday morning.

Belichick, illustrated with a New York Giants hoodie, is positioned next to a headline declaring “Bring Bill Home!”

“He wants to be the Giants coach. I know that for a fact,” a source tells the newspaper. “That would be pretty cool. My guess is if he wants out, the Giants already know.”

In the meantime, Belichick’s focus is on starting the playoffs with the Patriots on January 13 at 8:15 p.m. against a yet-to-be-determined opponent.

    Bill doesn’t want that job, the team is a mess and Bill doesn’t want to rebuild a dysfunctionional team. The only team he rebuilds will be the Patriots with a new QB when TB retires
