Brady, given his two decades of experience in football’s most mentally demanding position, is a natural candidate for coaching whenever he finishes his playing career. Yet when asked about the possibility of coaching on Thursday, the Patriots quarterback had an adamant response.

“Oh hell no, I’m never coaching,” Brady said. “Playing is enough for me.”

It’s the longest standing 100-meter men’s record since Jim Hines first broke the 10-second barrier winning gold in the 1968 Olympic 100-meter final. His record stood until 1983.

Daily highlight: LeBron “Bronny” James Jr. nailed a shot from the bench and called “Steph.”
