Chuck Knox

Former professional football coach Chuck Knox, who led the Los Angeles Rams to three straight NFC championship games, died over the weekend. He was 86. Knox was named NFL coach of the year in 1973, 1980, and 1984, winning once with each of the three NFL teams he coached: the Rams, the Seattle Seahawks, and Buffalo Bills. Knox was known as “Ground Chuck” due to his offenses focused on running. He went 186-147-1 in 22 seasons as an NFL head coach, and won five straight NFC West titles from 1973-77. “Great coach and an even better man,” said Hall of Fame defensive end Jack Youngblood.

Our prayers go out to the family.
