Former Bears linebacker Brian Urlacher has been enjoying his retirement so far by playing a lot of golf.
“Yeah, I’m playing a lot of golf,” Urlacher said, via the Chicago Tribune. “The first thing on my mind when I wake up isn’t working out anymore. So that’s a good thing. Doesn’t make me mad.’’
Urlacher was asked if he might want to come back and play football again.
“No. No,” Urlacher said. “My agent , when I told him … I just want to retire. He went through every scenario, what if so-and-so calls? What if they offer me $10 million? I don’t want to play. I don’t have a desire to play. I’m not in shape. I haven’t been doing football stuff.
“I’m sure I’ll miss it when it’s time to put the pads on and stuff. But I won’t miss how my body feels when I’m done.’’
Urlacher did admit he thought about coaching, but then realized he doesn’t want to.
“I don’t think I would be a good coach,’’ he said. “First of all, I don’t want to spend the time coaching. I feel bad for them. During the season, they work 90 hours a week. I don’t want to do that.’’
