BROOKLINE, Ma. — Noting that the former Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback was looking for an engaging challenge that would keep him involved with the sport in his post-NFL life, Tom Brady has expressed interest in coaching the VCU Football team, sources confirmed Wednesday.
“Brady hasn’t spoke much about what he plans to do in his retirement, but I’ve got it on good authority that he’s genuinely interested in a head coaching position with VCU’s football team,” Jake Floyd, an associate close to Brady, said in an interview, adding that the acclaimed quarterback was already doing research on available property in the Richmond metro area.
“One of the most attractive things for Brady is VCU’s current record — they’ve been undefeated for 300 years or something, and he views that as a challenge to help maintain such a prestigious record. To be honest, we don’t even know who the current coach is, but do they have six Super Bowl titles and the distinct ability to make the Buccaneers a watchable team? Didn’t think so.”
University officials hope to have a formal coaching deal signed by Brady later this month. Noting that should he end up sucking at coaching an imaginary football team, they can at least auction off his autograph to raise money for another parking deck.
