Watch: Patriots head coach Bill Belichick gets a new haircut for charity

Brandon King has not appeared in game for the New England Patriots in two seasons, but the veteran special teamer still had an important role to play earlier this week: King was tasked with cutting head coach Bill Belichick’s hair for a charitable purpose.

“Happy to be here with Brandon King to get my hair cut for Saving By Shaving to support Boston Children’s Hospital. And I want to thank Granite for promoting this and give me the opportunity to participate,” Belichick said. “So, Brandon: Cut away!”

And cut away he did, with Belichick later noting that his hair would now be shorter than it has been in quite some time.

The light-hearted video also includes scenes of him joking that he used to have more hair to cut off, and that the grey ones were the result of third-and-longs. Belichick also stated that he could not remember his last haircut where the barber did not use scissors on him; he believes it may have been “maybe when I was 12, 13 years old.”

The Saving By Shaving fundraiser was started by Granite Telecommunications CEO Rob Hale seven years ago and has since raised more than $2.2 million for cancer research.
