Tom Brady's QB mentor ailing

Patriots quarterback Tom Brady has spoken regularly about the impact Tom Martinez has had on his career, as Martinez served as his mentor for decades. Martinez, sadly, has been told he's in his final days. The San Jose Mercury News had the following item in its Sunday's editions: "Tom Martinez, Tom Brady's quarterback mentor and a San Mateo County coaching icon, took to Facebook to announce doctors have told him that he has no more than a month to live. He's suffered from complications brought about by diabetes for a number of years. But as recently as last Sunday, Martinez gave a tutorial session to Brady, a former Serra High star and reigning NFL MVP for New England." Mercury News reporter Glenn Reeves wrote more on Martinez, including a comment from Tom Brady Sr. "This will be such a loss to so many kids on the Peninsula, not to have him be there as a mentor,'' Brady Sr. told the Mercury News. "In our family he helped all three of our daughters and our son as recently as last Sunday. He had just got out of the hospital Saturday, but on Sunday he was sitting in his chair directing what was to be done. He is one of the great tacticians ever. His passing will be a major loss."
