Via the Dallas Morning News: Former 49ers coach Walsh dies

Bill Walsh, the groundbreaking football coach who won three Super Bowls and perfected the ingenious schemes that became known as the West Coast offense during a Hall of Fame career with the San Francisco 49ers, has died. He was 75.

Walsh died early Monday following a long battle with leukemia, according to Stanford University, where he served as coach and athletic director.

I really would’ve guessed he was younger than that, but as I stop and think about it, it has been sometime since his heyday in coaching.

He 49ers teams drove me nuts, I must confess!

May he rest in peace.
