During last year's NFL scouting combine, New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick surprised NFL Network's broadcasting trio of Rich Eisen, Mike Mayock and Willie McGinest by showing up in the booth. Fast forward one year and Belichick again crashed the party: Just like last year, he joined the live broadcast to talk about various topics and tell stories from the past.
Check out the clip, shared by the NFL:
Belichick: “[I want to think Deion’s 40] was a 4.27”@DeionSanders: “It was better than that!” @Patriots HC Bill Belichick just joined @nflnetwork’s Broadcast AGAIN... Pure Gold. #NFLCombine pic.twitter.com/mCGxZqrC0v— NFL (@NFL) March 5, 2018
The segment starts with Belichick voicing his admiration for the network for covering the combine before the seven-time Super Bowl winner handed a check to Eisen. Belichick donated an undisclosed sum to St. Jude Childrens Research Hospital, which is supported by Eisen through his Run Rich Run campaign.
Of course, New England's head coach also talked football - from Hall of Famer Deion Sanders, who was part of the broadcast in place of McGinest, at the combine to Tom Brady running through drills to former defensive coordinator Matt Patricia becoming head coach of the Detroit Lions. Some compelling television.
