What Schiano takes from Belichick
By Mike Reiss
TAMPA -- In a piece now posted on ESPN.com, NFC South reporter Pat Yasinskas writes on the connection between Patriots coach Bill Belichick and Buccaneers coach Greg Schiano.
Schiano talks about learning from Belichick on the practice field, and as for one of the biggest lessons he's learned, it's that sometimes less is more.
"He has a way of simplifying things," Schiano said. “I’ll hear some coaches do a three-page essay on how to handle a situation. Bill will say it in a sentence. That to me is being so familiar and the experience that he has that he’s able to see it clearly. Any good leader can do that, take the stuff that’s all over the place and bring it right to here."
