The loss in Super Bowl XLVI surely still stings, but perhaps New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick will be able to find some solace on the golf course this week against former protégé and current Alabama head football coach Nick Saban.
The two coaching titans will be matched up against each other during the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am, according to Al.com. Belichick will be paired with Ricky Barnes, while Saban will team up with former Crimson Tide golfer Bud Cauley.
Saban, who recently won his second national championship in three seasons, coached on Belichick's Cleveland Browns staff from 1991-94 until he took the head-coaching job at Michigan State. The tournament begins Thursday.
The two also coached against each other when Saban was head coach of the Miami Dolphins from 2005-06, splitting their four games against each other.
