Don "Air" Coryell dies at age 85

1

ProFootballTalk is reporting that Don Coryell died today due to complications from pneumonia: "A finalist for induction in the Pro Football Hall of Fame earlier this year, the coach took full advantage of rules changes aimed at opening up the passing game to create Air Coryell, an attack that turned quarterback Dan Fouts and tight end Kellen Winslow into Hall of Famers -- and the Chargers into perennial contenders." ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I realize he wasn't a Cowboy. But, he had a huge influence on today's passing game. RIP
