J.T. Barrett apparently doesn't want to be a coach in the future.

Ohio State quarterback J.T. Barrett doesn't project as a high draft pick in this year's upcoming NFL Draft, and many, including his head coach Urban Meyer, have suggested that someday, he'd be a great candidate to become a coach. It doesn't look like Barrett is on board - at least not right now.

Barrett told reporters on Friday that he longs for a post-football life that isn't stressful. He apparently doesn't like setting an alarm clock.

Barrett, who has broken numerous Ohio State and Big Ten records in his career, led the Buckeyes to an 11-2 record this past season. He threw for 2,939 yards and 35 touchdowns and nine interceptions.
