LaVell Edwards, Hall of Fame football coach, dies at age 86

I always found LaVell to be an honorable man. I think that was not easy when you started coaching in 1972 and the changes through when you quit in 2000. Mainly in the players that needed to be coached.

Really hard because the football world in 1972 was nothing like it is today.

Dang, I didn't even know this until now. I would have thought him enough well known for this to have garnered some attention. Rest in Peace LaVell.
