Tom Brady Trending After Raiders Fired Josh McDaniels
The firing of Las Vegas Raiders head coach Josh McDaniels - Tom Brady's longtime offensive coordinator - has people talking about the seven-time Super Bowl champion this morning.
McDaniels marks the ninth head coach to be hired and fired after working for the Patriots after the initial success the team had with Tom Brady as their starting quarterback. He's actually the third to be fired twice.
McDaniels finishes his tenure in Las Vegas with a 9-16 record. He lasted three fewer games than he did during his first head coaching tenure with the Denver Broncos with just 25 in Vegas versus 28 in Denver.
With that in mind, fans are all saying the same thing about Tom Brady: He made all of his coaches, not the other way around:
