This week, Tom Brady and the Las Vegas Raiders agreed to terms of a deal that will allow the all-time great quarterback to purchase a minority ownership stake in the team, and it sounds like Raiders head coach Josh McDaniels will be happy to have Brady involved with the team.
McDaniels spent plenty of time coaching Brady with the New England Patriots, where he served as a quarterbacks coach and offensive coordinator. And now he’s excited to be able to work alongside Brady again.
“I think everybody knows how I feel about Tom the person,” McDaniels said according to Pro Football Talk. “So, if that comes to fruition, obviously I’ll be incredibly excited about just him being somebody that’s in Raider Nation and has a vested interest in us doing as well as we can do in trying to bring a championship football team here to Vegas.
“So I don’t know exactly where all that stands. I think that’s a question that’s way above my pay grade in terms of that stuff. But, obviously, [I] had a great history with the player and an even better one with the person. So it’ll obviously be a tremendous honor to partner up with him again.”
McDaniels did make one thing clear, however: Brady will have to admit that the infamous “tuck rule” play for the 2001 postseason was a fumble.
“One hundred percent. No question,” McDaniels said.
