In The Least Surprising News of the Century…Coach Eric Taylor from Friday Night Lights Was Based On Bill Belichick
Umm duh. Obviously the inspiration for Coach Eric Taylor from Friday Night Lights was from my friend Bill (Belichick) You don’t become Texas coach of the year at two different schools by not emulating the master. You don’t learn about compassion, fairness, winning from anybody but Belichick. You don’t figure out how to win when your star QB Jason Street gets crippled unless you study Belichick. You don’t figure out how to motivate Riggins. You don’t figure out how to manage Smash Williams ego. You don’t figure out how to deal with Buddy Garrity. None of that happens without Belichick. It was obvious from the first time I watched the show. Seriously name one winner at anything in life who hasn’t modeled their careers after Belichick and I’ll show you a liar. Tami Taylor was probably based on Linda Holliday too.
