Former NFL head coach Chuck Knox has passed away after an extensive battle with dementia.
Knox was nicknamed “Ground Chuck” for his run-first approach on offense. Over nine seasons with the Seattle Seahawks he compiled an 80-63 record during the regular season, while making the AFC Championship game during his debut season in 1983. He is currently the only coach in the Seahawks’ ring of honor and has the second-most wins for a head coach in franchise history.
He also coached the Los Angeles Rams and Buffalo Bills before his time in Seattle. In addition, the coach won NFL coach of the year in the 1973, 1980, and 1984 seasons.
