Don Coryell, a “founding father” of the modern pro football passing game, died today in California. Coryell’s high-power, load-’em-up offenses were exciting in an era when most offenses were pretty dull. I consider Coryell an originator of the West Coast offense that Bill Walsh perfected.
My condolences to his family, and my thanks to Coach Coryell for some great games.
