"That's invigorating. It's a rush. It's a huge rush."
Those are the words of Bill Belichick, when asked to describe what it's like to be the New England Patriots head coach. But what exactly is it about the job that keeps Belichick passionate? To find out why their high-pressure occupations are so low-stress, USA TODAY interviewed Belichick and several other NFL coaches for an enlightening feature.
Scouting players could be one of the reasons Belichick loves his job, and he and his staff are likely doing a lot of that these days. According to the Tallahassee Democrat, at least two Florida State Seminole players will hold private workouts with Patriots personnel today.
Linebacker Lawrence Timmons is hoping to improve on his performance in the NFL Scouting Combine last month, while teammate Chris Davis is looking to impress the Pats brass at wide receiver, a position that has become loaded with depth recently.
Pats scouts will head to the heartland next week, according to the MetroWest Daily News. The local paper says a trio of Nebraska Cornhuskers defenders will run through drills for the Patriots on Tuesday.
