Tom Brady says he has not received any overtures from any other team, and he does not believe he has a good chance of returning to New England.
“No one has offered me anything.
I haven’t had anything from any team.
There’s been no overtures,” Brady told reporters during a news conference Tuesday.
“No one from any NFL team has offered to be my head man, no.
So that’s not going to change.”
Brady said he was not considering a reunion with the Patriots.
The NFL commissioner’s office is investigating whether any teams offered Brady a head coaching position after the 2015 season, including New York Jets.
The league’s investigation is focusing on whether Brady and his wife, Julie, received preferential treatment during the coaching search process.
Brady said he had been in contact with New England owner Robert Kraft, but he did not provide details.
The Patriots declined to comment on Brady’s comments.
The Jets and Dolphins also declined comment.
The NFL announced Tuesday that the league would investigate the New York Giants for using “improper and unfair” financial incentives to lure the Patriots’ star quarterback to Miami.
The Giants, which are owned by billionaire Stephen Ross, declined to discuss the matter.
Brady’s agent, Don Yee, said in a statement that the quarterback did not receive any offers for his services and that he had not heard anything about any other offers from any teams.
Patriots quarterback Tom Brady is expected to be interviewed by the NFL this week, according to a league source.
Brady was asked about his thoughts on the investigation by reporters at a news briefing Tuesday.
Asked about the NFL’s inquiry into his coaching future, Brady said: “It’s my business.
I have my own opinion.
I’m not going into it.”
Brady added: “I don’t know what’s going to happen with this.
I think it’s premature to talk about it.
That’s the nature of the business.”
Brady also said he expects a fair hearing from the NFL when it begins its investigation.
“I think they’re going to be fair.
They’re going [to] be as fair as they can be,” Brady said.
“Hopefully I’m going to get a fair opportunity.
I feel very good about my decision, and I feel that the process is going to proceed.”
Bradley is the first head coach to be fired by the Patriots since 2002, when Joe Torre resigned to become the Colts’ head coach.
The team finished 7-9.
The AFC North champion Patriots have won four of their last five games.
Brady led New England to its first Super Bowl appearance since 2009.
He led the Patriots to their only Super Bowl title in 2014.
