Coryell is one of the founding fathers of the modern passing game in football. His coaching resume includes work with NCAA and NFL teams. He coached the San Diego State Aztecs from 1961 to 1972.

His NFL coaching career includes:
St. Louis Cardinals 1973-1975

No cause of death has been released,but he had been in poor health for some time.

While I have never resided in cities where he coached, I am quite familiar with his work.

He was, in particular, an offense mastermind...and often featured an aggressive scoring attack mindset in his teams. Seem well-liked by his players too.

Terrible news, he made me a fan of the Chargers when I was a kid since Chargers games were always more exciting than anyone else's. R.I.P. Don
