Vikings head coach Kevin O’Connell was selected by the Patriots in the third round of the draft in 2008 and spent a year and a half in New England. Patriots coach Bill Belichick.

O’Connell, who will be coaching Belichick over Thanksgiving, said he’s still studying notes he made when Belichick coached him 14 years ago.

I still have old notebooks with team meeting notes that are always a pleasure to browse and review,” O’Connell said via star tribune.

How much respect does O’Connell have for Belichick?

“You really can’t tell how much I respect him as a person, as a coach, as a leader, what he meant to this league,” O’Connell said.

O’Connell didn’t have much of a playing career – playing two games as a rookie and then never playing regular season games again – but he’s off to a good start as a coach. And he credits Belichick with part of that success.
