I’ll watch for Belichick. He is a coaching legend, as much as I dislike the Patriots. What he has been able to do, specifically through frequently switching his coaching schemes to match his players’ talent against his opponents, is remarkable.
Saban on the other hand…unless his insights are relegated to recruiting, there’s not much I care to listen to. It’s easy to forget his record when he coached in a league with more-or-less equal talent (the NFL). He’s certainly not the worst of NFL coaches, or even near the bottom, but his record showed he wasn’t above average either.
There’s not a lot regarding Xs and Os that I find inovative coming out of Saban’s teams. He simply out-recruits all his opponents and beats them on the field with superior talent. It’s actually quite interesting to see his record against teams that can match him with talent. I’m sure he was happy when Urban left Florida.
