An inside-look at the coaching genius of Patriots coach Bill Belichick and Alabama coach Nick Saban will be on full display on more than just the gridiron this winter, as HBO released their first trailer for the upcoming feature-length documentary, “Belichick & Saban: The Art of Coaching,” on Tuesday.

Rather than take the 24/7 approach to following a team or person around, this documentary will seem to center on the friendship between Belichick and Saban, who worked together during their time with the Browns. (Saban’s relationship with the Belichick actually predates Bill, as Saban worked under Bill’s father, Steve Belichick, at the Naval Academy.)
It will also seem to feature the two swapping war stories about how they built their programs — Belichick with the six-time Super Bowl champion Patriots and Saban and his juggernaut Crimson Tide — and the struggles they encountered along the way. For example, it’s not hard to imagine that Belichick is probably talking about the 2007 16-0 season and its ending when he said that it probably would have been better for the Patriots if they lost one along the way.
The documentary will debut on Dec. 10.
