Bill Belichick-Nick Saban film coming to HBO

By WEEI 93.7

Patriots fans, and football fans in general for that matter, get ready.

HBO Sports and NFL Films have combined to present "Belichick & Saban: The art of coaching," which will be an in-depth look at the friendship between the two great coaches. It is a 90-minute film scheduled to air on HBO December 10.

"Nick and I have a long relationship and a great friendship," Belichick said Tuesday on Ordway, Merloni & Fauria. "We were approached on it and agreed to do it. I am sure NFL Films will do a good job with it. It's hard to make me look good on TV, but sometimes they've managed to do it. They seem to think there's a lot of interest in it, and I am happy to partner with Nick on anything. There's nobody I have more respect and appreciation for in football and as a friend than Nick Saban. I am honored to be part of anything with him."

Twelve championships. Two legacies. One powerful friendship.Belichick & Saban: The Art of Coaching premieres December 10 on @HBO.
