Creator of the West Coast Offense passes away

Pro Football Hall of Fame coach Bill Walsh passed away earlier today from leukemia. During his tenure with the 49ers, his teams went 102-63-1 with 6 division titles and won 10 of 14 postseason games and 3 Super Bowls. His coaching tree stretches throughout not only the NFL but the college ranks too. But most notably, over two-thirds of the NFL coaches owe a debt of thanks to the man who made Montana and to a lesser degree, Rice, the legends that they are today.
