New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady all but ruled out a return to the sidelines after his playing career is over, saying he doesn't think he would be a good coach.

Brady, 39, said before last season that his goal was to play for 10 more seasons years, or until he is 48 years old.

"Coaching wouldn't be for me," Brady said on a conference call. "No, certainly not. I like playing. I wouldn't be a good coach. I don't have the patience to be a coach."

Over 17 years in the NFL, Brady has a 175–51 QB record and has won four Super Bowl titles. He has also been selected to 11 Pro Bowls and been named the league's Most Valuable Player twice.

This season, Brady has been spectacular after sitting out the first four games of the season because of a suspension for his role in Deflategate. He has won all three of his starts this season, completing 75% of his passes for 1,004 yards with eight touchdowns and no interceptions.
