Buccaneers coach tests positive for coronavirus, others quarantined

Tom Brady’s coaches have coronavirus.

A Buccaneers assistant has tested positive for COVID-19 and two other Tampa Bay assistants have been quarantined, according to ESPN. The coach who tested positive is asymptomatic.

Brady, 42, left the Patriots this offseason and signed a fully guaranteed two-year, $50 million deal with Tampa Bay. The Buccaneers, who also signed former Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski, reopened their team facility on June 11, but it’s unclear if Brady has spent any time there yet.

The report comes when there is some uneasiness growing among NFL coaches about the league’s coronavirus protocol. Rams coach Sean McVay expressed his apprehensiveness during a Zoom call Thursday to announce the new season of the HBO reality series “Hard Knocks” that will chronicle the Rams and Chargers during training camp.

“It is a bit mind-numbing,” McVay said. “We’re sitting here talking about handless doors? We’re going to social distance, but we’re playing football? I don’t get it!”

Also, Dr. Anthony Fauci — Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases — told CNN on Thursday that he’s doubtful the league can play a traditional season in home stadiums and that the NFL likely will need to adopt a model closer to the NBA’s bubble plan at Disney World in Orlando.
