Miami Heat head coach and two-time NBA champion Eric Spoelstra addressed the NFL's Seattle Seahawks on Tuesday.

Count on Miami Heat head coach Eric Spoelstra to inspire the NFL's Seattle Seahawks.

According to Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel, Spoelstra addressed the Seahawks on Tuesday in Renton, Wash. three weeks after he did the same thing for the Tennessee Volunteers in Knoxville as a favor for friend and head coach Butch Jones.  

Winderman notes Spoelstra is from Portland, Ore., so making the trip up north shouldn't be much of a problem. Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson thinks the team will ultimately benefit from the wisdom of both Spoelstra and their own head coach, Pete Carroll. 

"For Coach Spoelstra to come here and spend time with us and spend time with Coach (Pete) Carroll means a lot to us, first of all. It's a pleasure to be around him and all the great things that he has done so far with the Miami Heat.

"And then, if you think about it, for Coach Carroll and Coach Spoelstra to be able to get together and share words and share thoughts and everything like that, that's going to be a huge advantage for us, and hopefully it'll be an advantage for them, too, as well. And hopefully we can learn as much as we can from them, and back and forth." 

And what exactly did Spoelstra talk about ?

"He talked about how his team was successful and the way they went about their business in terms of sacrifice. It was the whole idea of sacrificing everything else. That's what it takes to be great. It clicked with us. Listening to his thoughts was awesome for us.

"That's what he talked about. It's having that discipline and believing yourself, sort of ignore the noise. And how do you continue to stay focused when so many things are said about you? How do you stay focused on the work ethic and the sacrifice?"

Spoelstra was named Heat head coach in April 2008 and enters the 2013-14 season with an all-time record of 260-134 (.660). In his five-year tenure, he has guided Miami to two consecutive NBA championships in 2012 and 2013.
