He had been battling Leukemia. One of the all time great NFL coaches, while he may get more credit than he deserves for the West-Coast offense, he did refine that system and bring it to a level never before seen in the NFL. edit: linkage http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?f=/c/a/2007/07/30/BAG57LR8OK21.DTL (edited by brick on 30.7.07 1512) Promote this thread!

He could have named his price at about 90% of the teams in the NFL when he was stepping down in San Fran but didnt. RIP Mr Walsh.

Loved the way in which he handled himself on and off the field. Do not forget that he is the man who cranked out the fraternity of coaches that have all been successful. RIP
