It’s reported that New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick has renamed his boat to reflect the number of Super Bowl victories he has amassed.

Belichick renamed his Grady-White Tournament 225 after each Super Bowl win. The coach donated V Rings to Sail Newport in Newport, R.I., for use as a support vessel.

Belichick now owns a Grady-White Freedom 307, and updated the name of his 307 to VII Rings, in honor of his seventh Super Bowl ring as a head or assistant head coach.

With the Patriots beating the Los Angeles Rams 13-3 in the Super Bowl on Sunday, Discover Boating has offered to paint Belichick’s Grady-White. Discover Boating offered some new name suggestions, including Ocho Ring-O, Don’t H8, Billy G.O.A.T., G.O.A.T. Captain and IX Rings (“so we don’t have to paint it twice”).
