Thibodeau, LaRussa visit Patriots mini camp

Bill Belichick was thrilled to have two of his friends visit the Patriots during mini camp. Tom Thibodeau and Tony LaRussa made the trip to Foxboro to hang out and possibly even offer some team advice.

"It's great having them here," Belichick said. "I have all the respect in the world for Tom and Tony. Great coaches in their respective sports. Tony has won over like 2,000 games... He wins more games in a month than I've won in my career."

Belichick complimented Thibodeau and all he accomplished in Boston, as well as in Chicago with the Bulls.

"I have a lot of questions I want to ask them about running a team, getting ready for the season, things like that, maybe they'll be able to help me out."
