February 23, 2012 by staff
Tom Martinez: Brady’s Mentor Dies, Tom Martinez, the longtime personal coach to New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, has died. He was 66.
Brady said in a statement posted on his Facebook page Wednesday that he is “deeply saddened by the passing of my coach, mentor and friend.”
“Coach Martinez’s invaluable assistance and support will never be forgotten and will always have a lasting impact on my life,” Brady said in the statement. “The time we spent together remain some of my fondest memories. His legacy of commitment, toughness and determination will live on forever.”
Tom Martinez worked with Brady when he was a teenager growing up in San Mateo, where Martinez coached at College of San Mateo. Their relationship continued during Brady’s NFL career.
Brady told reporters before this year’s Super Bowl that Martinez taught him how to throw a football, and he was “forever indebted” to him. The quarterback said Martinez had been seeking a kidney for some time.
“A lot of people are looking for kidneys or some different type of transplants, but he’s very deserving,” Brady said then. “He’s a great man.”
