Not a grad ... but Belichick’s father was a naval coach for 34 years.

Kyle Eckel played for Navy and won one with the Saints.

I had Steve Belichek for gym a couple of times. Many of my FB Player classmates knew/know Bill Belichek from those days. He continues to be associated with Navy Football
 
Sorry to rain on your parade.
The dream of going to the Super Bowl clearly belongs to kids everywhere dreaming of being West Point cadets:
DREAM BIG! GO ARMY!

I want to put an asterisk by Kyle Eckel’s name. He got himself kicked out of the Navy and off active duty so he could go pro. Paid off his USNA cost with football cash. Left a bad taste in everyone’s mouth. You won’t find much online but a lot of speculation about what he did, and he wouldn’t speak about it. I heard enough from reputable AD sources at the time of his involuntary separation to form an opinion.

I think the DOD rule has swung back to the conservative side - do your time, and then we can talk going pro.

There isn’t much about it ... but that’s why I said he played for navy and won a super bowl. Nowhere does it say he graduated from USNA.
 
He was the Anchor Man. He was commissioned, and during his first tour of duty, got himself in an officer misconduct separation situation.
 
Oh, he graduated but as Capt MJ said, he left under a cloud and while at USNA was alleged to have been involved in some unsavory things.

The anchor man of my class was from our sister company and is someone who I see often on social media.
He's actually done pretty well in life after USNA although he did leave the Navy at the 5 yr point.

LOL!

Strange, I would have expected you to respond (per my request) with Super Bowl rings that USMA grads wear.

Are there really ZERO in which case those are just empty dreams? By the way, I served with one of our Super Bowl
Ring wears. . . at least tangentially. He was in the class behind mine at USNA and 5 yrs after I graduated, I was a passenger
on a helicopter that he flew and it was a fairly memorable flight for all of us. He was a good pilot and reportedly a good officer.
He's done very well post Navy and post football.
 
It appears that like d3 football players, Army hasn’t produced a super bowl ring. ;)

Football players go to West Point to be soldiers, not pro athletes. And they are quite successful at that.

....and yet still, Army keeps winning football games. Its almost like divine reward for selfless commitment.
 
Vince Lombardi, former USMA Assistant Football coach, The first 2 rings.
 
USMA had some coaches
Mike Sullivan with the Giants x 2
Bob Mischack coaching with the Raiders x 3
 
Really, no one attends West Point because he wants to win the Super Bowl. It is about becoming an Army officer.
However, in the full commercial, the kid who CBS tells to 'Dream Big' includes West Point on the way to winning Super Bowl.
Go Army!
 
Which team is nationally ranked this year? Which team has the #1 coach in college football? Army.
