The passing of Bill Walsh

Sad news on the NFL front today.  Bill Walsh, the legendary coach of the 49ers has died.  He lost his battle with leukemia at age 75.  As a football fan, I realize what Bill Walsh has meant to the NFL, introducing the West Coast Offense to the league.  You can begin to appreciate Walsh’s influence by looking at his coaching tree:

Being a Broncos fan, we’ve enjoyed Mike Shanahan, one of the many fruits of that tree.  Prayers for him and his family.
