Bruce Arians addresses rumors of rift with Tom Brady
Over the 2021 NFL season and the uncertainty of Tom Brady’s offseason, various media and social media reports have pointed to rumors that the legendary quarterback does not get along with Bruce Arians. The head coach of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers says he’s not sure how the rumors got started.
Arians recently told NFL Media’s Steve Wyche that he has a “great” relationship with Brady and that the two kept up during Brady’s brief retirement.
“I have no clue where it comes from,” Arians said. “Somebody’s got to write a story every day about something. Tom and I have a great relationship. Even during the retirement: ‘Where you at?’ ‘I’m in Italy.’ ‘How’s it going?’ ‘Got the kids over here.’ You know, just checking on him. I can’t get him back on the golf course because he’s traveling too much, so I can’t win enough money off him.”
