FOXBORO, Mass. — In a rather odd move, Greg Schiano and six members of his Tampa Bay coaching staff are scheduled to visit Foxboro next week to go over coaching techniques with Bill Belichick and his assistants.
The meetings are expected to cover the Patriots’ scheduling regarding preseason, bye week and practice, according to Don Banks of Sports Illustrated. The teams face off twice this season, once during Week 2 of the preseason and again in Week 3 of the regular season.
The meetings are also expected to cover when the teams will meet for joint practices during training camp. The two run their teams very similarly, as noted by all of the Rutgers rookies that met with the media on Friday.
