    The only Man to have over 100 victories in college and the NFL, passed away yesterday at the age of 85. The former San Diego Chargers head coach, was loved and respected by many, including yours truly. The man changed the way the game is played. Anyone who knows anything about Football, will tell you Don's ideas on the passing game were cutting-edge.Mr. Coryell, had hall of Fame coaches as John Madden and Joe Gibbs on his staffs and HOF players as Dan Fouts, Kellen Winslow and Charlie Joiner. It's a shame, that he was not able to get elected to the hall this past year.

    Remember watching him as a kid, it was so exciting.
    There is a sign leaving the stadium where the Chargers play (The "Q" ) that is named Coryell Pass.
    RIP Don. You will be missed!
