ESPN Releases Trailer For Upcoming 30 for 30 On Belichick and ParcellsKim Klement - USA TODAY Sports

ESPN unveiled the first trailer for its latest documentary in its “30 for 30” TV series this week entitled “The Two Bills”, which focuses on the relationship between coaching legends Bill Parcells and Bill Belichick over the course of their NFL careers working together and apart.

Before being an accomplished head coach in New England, Belichick gained most of his coaching experience from Parcells while working under him as a assistant coach and defensive coordinator with the Giants (1979-1990), defensive backs coach with the Patriots (1996) and Jets defensive coordinator (1997-1999). Belichick won his first two Super Bowl rings with Parcells and the Giants in 1986 and 1990.

The film will also feature the drama that surrounded Belichick’s hiring in New England and the toll it had on his friendship with Parcells.

Following the 1999 season, Parcells stepped down from the Jets head coach position expecting Belichick to take over. Instead, Belichick stunned the football world by resigning as Jets head coach after just one day on the job. He would take over as head coach of the Patriots instead for the 2000 season.

Parcells claimed that Belichick was still under contract to the Jets, and immediately demanded compensation from the Patriots. Then NFL Commissioner Paul Tagliabue agreed with the complaint, and the Patriots gave the Jets a first-round draft pick in 2000 in exchange for the right to hire Belichick.

“The Two Bills” will also feature a rare interview with both coaches together in the same room along with notable special guests such as Patriots owner Robert Kraft, former NFL coordinator and Notre Dame head coach Charlie Weis, former Giants linebacker Harry Carson and Pro Football Hall of Famer Lawrence Taylor.
