Report: Brady QB guru Martinez dead


Martinez reportedly died due to a heart attack while receiving dialysis. The coach, who also worked at the College of San Mateo, had been ill for quite some time and was waiting for a kidney transplant.

He died on his birthday.

Martinez touched many lives as a coach and mentor to young athletes, a list that not only includes Brady but fellow Bay Area native and Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman.
