New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick had zero interest in discussing his recent contract extension.

Signed in 2007 to a deal set to expire after the 2013 season, Belichick has signed a new contract extension to keep him with the Patriots for a long time, according to NFL Network.

Why doesn't Belichick want to talk about it?

Well, one, he considers it none of reporters' business.

Two, he abhors attention on himself.

Three, it avoids the possible distraction if Belichick is ever in a contract year or starts losing.

Belichick's answer: "I don't talk about my personal contract sitution, sorry."
