Tom Brady Sr. spoke to the Boston Herald after his son advanced to the Super Bowl with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers this past weekend.

Brady Sr. noted that his son received a congratulatory message from New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft.

"Robert's been a spectacular owner for 25 years. He is sincere in his feelings for Tommy when he expresses his feelings, and it's vice versa," the elder Brady said. "Tommy feels the same way with Robert Kraft. He has an extraordinarily close relationship with him. I know Robert is rooting for Tommy right now. As I know Jonathan, Danny and the whole family. There's no question about that."

He notably omitted Bill Belichick. When asked, Brady Sr. speculated about his son's former coach.

"I'm guessing he's on a little bit of a hot seat right now," Brady Sr. said.
