HBO’s new documentary “Belichick & Saban: The Art of Coaching” premieres Tuesday night.

The network wrote the following for the description of the documentary about the Patriots coach and the leader of Alabama:

Spanning 75 minutes, BELICHICK & SABAN: THE ART OF COACHING brings into focus a more than three-decades-long friendship between Belichick and Saban, who for the first time ever grant unprecedented camera access to their annual coaching retreat where they share a multi-layered conversation about their interwoven history, admiration, coaching philosophies, and more. The intimate portrait invites viewers to examine first-hand their blueprints for organizational success in what can only be described as a literal “meeting of the minds.”

For those of you who haven’t seen the preview yet, I suggest you check it out below. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

If you’re a fan of football, you simply have to watch this when it airs. It’s not optional, it’s not up for debate and it’s not up for discussion.

It just needs to happen. Bill Belichick is the most successful NFL coach in the history of the league, and Nick Saban’s six rings prove he’s the best at the college level.

We’re talking about two titans of the industry, and HBO is going to take an inside look at their lives and rises to power at their respective levels.

If that doesn’t have you interested, then you’re not a real football fan.

I’m absolutely fascinated by Nick Saban. I’m fascinated with him at a level that is almost hard to explain. Don’t get me wrong. I still hate Alabama and the SEC, but I respect the hell out of the Crimson Tide coach.

The man’s brain operates in a way that is hard for most of us to understand, and that’s why he’s so successful.

Tune in at 9:00 EST on HBO. It’s going to be awesome.
