Tom Brady will be playing for his fifth Super Bowl victory on Sunday, but in the week leading up to it, he’s had his alma mater, Michigan, on his mind.
On Wednesday, Brady told reporters this, per Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press:
“I’d do anything to help the University of Michigan, Brady told reporters at Super Bowl LI. “He wants me to be involved and I love it. I don’t know about quarterback coach, but words of wisdom to that quarterback group, I would love to do that.”
This was after Wolverines coach Jim Harbaugh said Brady was the greatest football player to ever play earlier in the day and added that it would be great if Brady were to return as a coach, possibly even as quarterbacks coach, in retirement.
Brady also told reporters that the Wolverines aren’t quite over the hump yet. Perhaps, he will arrive in the future to help them do so.
The former Wolverine played in Ann Arbor from 1996-99, throwing for 4,773 yards and 30 touchdowns during his collegiate career.
He and his current team, the New England Patriots, will take on the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday in Super Bowl LI.
