Coryell Coverage

Posted by Christopher Smith on July 13, 2010 – 8:48 AM

For those that missed the celebration of Don Coryell yesterday at San Diego State, here are some of the articles that describe what happened.

Don Coryell is the most influential man in San Diego’s football history, Don Norcross of the San Diego Union-Tribune said.

More than 2,000 people attended a service mostly filled with laughter, Dan Hayes of the North County Times said. The event made John Madden emotional.

Coryell’s bold approach molded the NFL’s culture, Jim Trotter of Sports Illustrated said.

The surge of support for Coryell in the Hall of Fame highlights the debate about off-field issues and their place in the voting, Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk said. He thinks Coryell will get enshrined next August.

Stay true and keep pounding,
Christopher

Share Air Coryell Memories

Posted by Christopher Smith on July 6, 2010 – 2:14 PM

I never met Don Coryell.

I must confess, the first time I read Air Coryell in a football publication, I thought the writer was referring to former Tennessee Titans QB Steve “Air” McNair and made a mistake. It’s become apparent that I was ignorant to a meaningful bit of football history and a person that many people cared about.

I won’t pretend to put his legacy in San Diego or his contribution to the game of football in context. But as I drove up the 5 on Thursday, leaving Chargers Park for a holiday weekend, I heard the sad news about Coryell’s passing.

In the days that have followed, it’s been obvious that the man meant something to people around the organization and the city, and not just for his contributions as a football coach.

You now have a chance to read about some of those memories and share your own. The Chargers have set up a site in Coryell’s memory, which you can access here.

Stay true and keep pounding,
Christopher
