BOSTON, Sept. 14 (UPI) -- Statues of historical figures in Boston are being fitted with New England Patriots Coach Bill Belichick's signature hoodie for an NFL network tribute.

The NFL network said the cut-off hoodies are being placed on statues of figures including Mayor James Michael Curley, Christopher Columbus and John Singleton Copley as part of the network's tribute, "Bill Belichick: A Football Life," which is scheduled to premier on the cable network Thursday, the Boston Globe reported Wednesday.

Jacque Goddard, a spokesman for Boston's Parks and Recreation Department, said the deal allowing the NFL network to use the statues includes a sizable donation from the network to go toward restoring statues in the city.
