JUPITER, Fla. -- We have a Bill Belichick sighting.

After the Patriots head coach spent most of the recent NFL Combine laying low, Belichick was seen in a more relaxing, non-football environment Friday afternoon. Belichick spent the afternoon in the vacant Cardinals radio broadcast booth at Roger Dean Stadium taking in the Red Sox' Grapefruit League game against the Marlins.

Belichick was a guest of his longtime friend, and current special assistant to Red Sox president of baseball operations Dave Dombrowski, Tony LaRussa.

Belichick and his girlfriend Linda Holliday joined LaRussa and his former closer Dennis Eckersley in the booth starting in the sixth inning.

The Pats' boss has routinely been seen attending spring training games LaRussa has been a part of, dating back to the Hall-of-Famer's stint as manager of the St. Louis Cardinals.

The Red Sox ended the day by dropping a 5-4 decision to the Marlins. (For a complete box score, click here.)
