Bill Walsh dead at 75

Former 49ers coach Bill Walsh has died from Leukemia at the age of 75. He was an offensive mastermind who transformed San Francisco from a an afterthought to one of the greatest dynasties in NFL history. He won three Super Bowls, and perfected the style of play now known as the West Coast offense. I don’t have a lot to say as I didn’t follow football when he was around, but here are some links in remembrance of him:
