Bill Belichick takes “no days off,” but the New England Patriots coach did break away from the 2017 NFL Scouting Combine on Sunday to spend a couple minutes talking with one of his favorite former players, Willie McGinest.
Belichick walked into NFL Network’s press box booth and threw on a headset to talk to McGinest, now an NFL Media analyst, on live television. Belichick and McGinest discussed their favorite memories from the Patriots’ games against the Colts, which is appropriate, since the combine is held at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis.
Belichick was one of few coaches who didn’t speak at a podium during the combine this year. It took the convincing of Mike Mayock, one of Belichick’s former players, to throw on Rich Eisen’s headset.
Watch the full clip below to see a side of Belichick that he rarely shows to the public.
