Don’t expect Tom Brady to be mapping out X’s and O’s after his playing career comes to an end.
The Patriots quarterback shut down any notion of him coaching once he retires, despite being lauded as one of the greatest players of all time.
“Oh hell no, I’m never coaching. Playing is enough for me,” Brady said, via NBC Sports Boston.
Brady is known for preparing hard for games and having in-depth knowledge of his playbooks. He’s also known for pushing – and teasing – younger players to be better for the game.
Just Sunday he made a jab at Patriots rookie Chase Winovich’s Instagram post – which featured a quote from “Julius Caesar” – by telling him to “study the playbook.”
The question was brought up after the Patriots’ and Titans’ joint practice, where Brady’s former teammate Mike Vrabel was patrolling the sidelines and gearing up for his second season as Tennessee’s coach.
Brady, 42, likely will want to spend time with his wife and children, along with growing his health business, TB12, instead of coaching. He’s currently in his 20th season with the Patriots and has said he wants to keep playing into his mid-40s.
