"Dad and I have a really good relationship at home and a really good working relationship as well, so if he tells me to do something, I'll do it, just like I do with the other coaches," he said.
"We've never had any conflict about my football and I think Mum has been pretty big on that, when we're at home we're a family and don't talk much about football. I know that he's there though so, if I need to, I can go straight to Dad.
"People will probably think it's a bit funny because he's my dad but at the end of the day, he's just another coach at the club."
John said at times he found it tough separating himself from his roles last year.
"It was difficult. I won't lie, I get pretty excited when he does something well, but I tried not to show it too much because I know the cameras are onto me," he said.
"I didn't expect to see him play as many games as he did, so I thought it was a super effort.
"I'm a really proud father and hopefully he can continue on and have a better year this year."
