New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, whether he plays a few more seasons or not, is in the final phase of his legendary NFL career. Could he become an NFL coach once his playing days are over?

Brady was asked Thursday at a press conference about a potential future in coaching, and although he didn't totally rule it out, it doesn't seem like something he's considering right now. Check out his answer in the video above. 

The 41-year-old quarterback does possess some of the attributes of a great coach. He's good at motivating players. He's a student of the game who watches a ton of film. He can relate to players and the challenges they face given his nearly 20 years of experience. 

Brady still has more football left to play, however. He recently told ESPN there's "zero" chance he retires after Sunday's Super Bowl LIII against the Los Angeles Rams, regardless of the outcome. Brady, judging by how well he's played in the playoffs, has no reason to consider retirement.

He's still one of the best, if not the best quarterback in the league.
