Bill Belichick And Billy Donovan: Game Recognizes Game


TOPICS:
, , ,

Game recognizes game, which makes it little surprise that Bill Belichick and Billy Donovan are friends. While Belichick’s connections to Florida have been well-covered (he and former Florida coach Urban Meyer would workshop in the offseason), little has been made of his relationship with Donovan.

According to Yahoo! Sports, the two have a friendship that dates back nearly 15 years. While they have each seen their share of successes, Belichick says that, at his core, Billy D is still the same person that took over the Florida program all those years ago.

The two friends talk “a lot,” Belichick said, and although so much has changed for both men over time, “at heart, he’s the same guy. A team-builder.”

Though they coach different sports at different levels, the two individuals are still leaders of men. It’s there that they find kinship. Much like the friendship between Bobby Knight and Bill Parcells, great coaches gravitate to each other.

 “He’s a great motivator, a great fundamental coach,” Belichick told Yahoo Sports after Florida’s 61-45 win. “He’s great with scheme and team stuff.”

If Billy the Kid is able to capture his third national championship this year, he and Belichick (owner of three Super Bowls) will have even more in common.
