Patriots fans, and football fans in general for that matter, get ready.

HBO Sports and NFL Films have combined to present "Belichick & Saban: The art of coaching," which will be an in-depth look at the friendship between the two great coaches. It is a 90-minute film scheduled to air on HBO December 10.

"Nick and I have a long relationship and a great friendship," Belichick said Tuesday on Ordway, Merloni & Fauria. "We were approached on it and agreed to do it. I am sure NFL Films will do a good job with it. It's hard to make me look good on TV, but sometimes they've managed to do it. They seem to think there's a lot of interest in it, and I am happy to partner with Nick on anything. There's nobody I have more respect and appreciation for in football and as a friend than Nick Saban. I am honored to be part of anything with him."
