FOXBOROUGH, MA (WBZ-AM / 24/7 News) -- New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft has no doubts about the future of head coach Bill Belichick.

ESPN reports Kraft believes Belichick will "absolutely" be back with the team in 2018.

Reports earlier this week suggested there was friction between Kraft, Belichick and quarterback Tom Brady. The trio issued a statement of solidarity on Friday.

Multiple reports also state Belichick is interested in the vacant New York Giants head coaching job, which he has not commented on.

Belichick has coached the Patriots for the past 18 seasons, and has guided them to seven Super Bowl appearances, with five victories. New England has won at least 10 games every year since 2003.
