Tom Brady Returns To Michigan, Throws Touchdown To Dabbing Son

BOSTON (CBS) – With extra time on his hands during his DeflateGate suspension, Tom Brady was back at the University of Michigan throwing touchdowns Saturday.

The former Wolverines quarterback served as Michigan's honorary captain at the Big House for their game against Colorado.

Brady had not watched a game in person at his alma mater since 1999, but was he able to schedule this visit due to his 4-game suspension.

Before the game, Brady shared a video on Facebook showing him throwing a touchdown pass to his son on the field where he spent his college career.

In the Facebook video, Brady's son hauls in the pass and throws down a celebratory "dab" dance.

A commenter noted that Brady is "such a good dad," to which the quarterback replied with a correction - "dab*."

Michigan was ranked fourth in the nation entering Saturday's game and has not finished with a top five ranking since Brady's senior year.

Michigan went on to beat Colorado 45-to-28.
