No matter your favorite team, the "Genuis" coached an incredible team to 3 championships and developed that "West coast offense." If you lived through the 80s who could forget that dominating 49ers team, they were a treat to watch even when they were beating up your team. The Hall of Famer that coached plenty of Hall of Famers will be missed for his ability to lead and his willingness to give.

He was a great minded coach. Before him it was 3 run plays and a cloud of dust....He made it real exciting especially in the 84 SuperBowl when they were 15-1 against Miami 14-2 (Marino, Duper,Clayton) as two offensive powers met up in that game with the Niners prevailing. I think i read several years ago that the 49ers had more total yards of offense in the 1980's than any other NFL team in history.

Been a 49er fan even before Joe Montana and Jerry Rice and Coach Walsh. Remember the Jim Plunkett days in the late 70's....

Again sad to hear his passing.
Go 49ers !!

That was nine years ago. He should be at peace by now.

I was at the Pro Football Hall of Fame and was looking at his bust, and thinking how he looked so much like his bust.

About 2 hours later we were going to leave, I got in my car and they announced on the radio that Bill Walsh had just passed. I was shocked, and wondered if I was looking at his bust the moment he died.

Paul Brown's biggest mistake in his illustrious football career was letting his ego get in the way and not giving the coaching reigns of the Bengals to Bill Walsh who was an assistant coach with the Bengals at the time.

It was Walsh in Cincinnati where the "West Coast" offense was born with Greg Cook at QB. Unfortunately, both Walsh and Cook would be out of Cincinnati around the same time. One due to a dumb decision and one to a career ending injury. Walsh had said the best QB he'd ever coached was Greg Cook and not Joe Montana. Imagine that.

And, yes, Bill Walsh is still dead.
