Football Coach
    (October 17, 1924-July 1, 2010)
    Born in Seattle, Washington
    Coached Whittier College (1957-59), San Diego State Aztecs (1961-72), St. Louis Cardinals (1973-77) and San Diego Chargers (1978-86)
    College record of 127 wins, 24 losses, 3 ties
    Pro record of 111 wins, 83 losses
    Associated Press NFL Coach of the Year (1974)
    Inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame (1986)
    Despite being only 5'8 and 150 pounds, he tried to break up a fight between lineman Conrad Dobler and end Charlie Davis, coming away with a broken nose.
    He had a lisp, with Dobler commenting, 'He sounded like Daffy Duck.'
    His teams were criticized for their poor defense, with the Chargers surrendering the most passing yards in the NFL in back to back seasons (1981-82).
    He first became a finalist for NFL Hall of Fame consideration the year of his death and was passed over.
    He was the first coach to win 100 games at both the college and pro levels.
    His 'Air Coryell' offense revolutionized the passing game.
    His coaching staff at SDSU included future Super Bowl winners John Madden and Joe Gibbs.
    Hall of Fame tight end Kellen Winslow said, 'For Don Coryell to not be in the Hall of Fame is a lack of knowledge of the voters. That's the nicest way that I can put that.'
