Tom Brady rules out one presumed career path after retirement

Without a shadow of a doubt, New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady will go down as one of the best players ever to play in the NFL.

With 11 Pro Bowl appearances, four Super Bowls, three Super Bowl MVP awards, and two NFL MVP awards, the 39-year-old is bound to be a first ballot Hall of Famer once he decides to call it a day, and even that might not be for a couple of years yet.

But what would be next for Brady? With him being such a huge name not only in the NFL but across the globe, there will be countless opportunities for him. However, the 39-year-old quarterback has already dismissed one avenue after his playing time is over, coaching.

When asked about coaching in a conference call earlier this week according to Patriots beat writer Zack Cox of NESN, he said: “Coaching wouldn’t be for me. No, certainly not. I like playing. I wouldn’t be a good coach. I don’t have the patience to be a coach.”

Brady has probably seen what his own head coach Bill Belichick has gone through to become successful and wants no part of it. Belichick has been the head coach of the team since 2000, the year which the 11-time Pro Bowl quarterback was drafted by the team as well, so he has seen the process which the 64-year-old has gone through to become the success he is today.

The likelihood is when the Patriots quarterback decides to call it a day, so will his head coach, meaning New England will have two major holes in their team once that day arrives.

Just because you’re a great player, doesn’t automatically make you a great coach. Coaching isn’t for everyone and the three-time Super Bowl MVP has probably already recognized that the coaching path isn’t for him.
