Belichick to speak at Texas Coaches Clinic: Bill Belichick, coach of the Su­per Bowl cham­pion New Eng­land Pa­tri­ots, will be the key­note speaker at the Texas Coaches Clinic in April, UT coach Tom Herman tweeted Tues­day.

The an­nual event is two days, with mem­bers of the Texas High School Coaches As­so­ci­a­tion at­tend­ing the clinic from April 7-8. Be­cause the NCAA will not al­low high school coaches to speak, Herman has brought in ar­guably one of the great­est foot­ball coaches in the history of the sport.

Belichick has won five Su­per Bowls as coach of the Pa­tri­ots, more than any other coach in NFL history. He is a three-time As­so­ci­ated Press NFL coach of the year win­ner and has been in charge of the Pa­tri­ots since 2000.
