The Travelers Championship PGA Tour Celebrity Pro-Am event at the TPC River Highlands in Cromwell, Connecticut, included New England Patriots Head Football Coach Bill Belichick, who was among several celebrities sharing comments on Alabama football related subjects.

New England Head Football Coach Bill Belichick on recently named radio color analyst for the Alabama Crimson Tide Sports Network, Phil Savage – "Phil's a great guy. I hired him at Cleveland when I got there. He worked in coaching, scouting and went on to direct the Baltimore (Ravens) personnel department and then also be a general manager at Cleveland (Browns). He's had a great career. He really knows football and knows personnel. He's great with people and I'm sure he'll give some good insights to the games. He hosts everyone down at the Senior Bowl in Mobile when we come down there to scout. He has a nice cookout and barbeque for everybody so he's very hospitable. Everybody in the league loves him."

Belichick on his good friend, University of Alabama Head Football Coach,Nick Saban – "Coach Saban's one of my favorite people and he's certainly meant a lot to me. I learned a lot with Coach Saban at Cleveland and he's done a tremendous job down there. I'm proud of that whole operation."

Bill Belichick on former University of Alabama offensive lineman, Wesley Britt who begins his fifth year with the New England Patriots – "Wesley's one of our hardest working guys. He just continues to work hard and develop. We got him on the practice squad (2005) and he worked his way up on the roster. He just keeps plugging away. He's a real blue-collar hard-working guy."
