"I haven't spoken to Josh about that, but I can understand obviously why people would have those guys at the top of their list," Brady said in an interview with WEEI in Boston. "Josh has done an incredible job. He's an incredible coach and a great friend. This is that time of year where coaches get an opportunity.
