Chuck Knox, former Seattle Seahawks, LA Rams coach, dies at 86

Former Seahawks coach Chuck Knox passes away at age 86

In fact, he had them in the postseason in four of his first six seasons leading the team.

Knox, who also helmed the Seattle Seahawks and Buffalo Bills, led the Rams to five consecutive double-digit win seasons, the Rams said in a statement.

Sewickley High School graduate and former National Football League head coach Chuck Knox passed away Saturday, at the age of 86. "He was one of many nice influences not exclusively in soccer, however in life".

After 1984, Knox coached seven more years in Seattle but only won 10 or more games once, in 1986. He was inducted by the team in 2005. Nicknamed "Ground Chuck" due to his run-first offenses, Knox was named NFL Coach of the Year three times - in 1973, 1980 and 1984. That was a jolt after the team's often-wild, wide-open-and losing-first seven years in the NFL.

After the 1982 season was cut short by a players' strike, Knox and the Bills failed to come to an agreement on a contract extension. "As Knox said himself, 'What you do speaks so well, no need to hear what you say'". In a statement that the Seahawks release, they honored Knox in a very admirable way.

Viola! Months later, Seattle played the hand it dealt itself into its first-ever playoff berth. It would have been the only Super Bowl championship of his career. Knox's personality, expertise and excellence had instantly transformed the franchise. He was unable to lift the then-downtrodden franchise back into playoff contention, though, going 15-33 in three seasons.

Knox debuted as the Seahawks coach in 1983. You have always been my dad.

"You can live with that". He grew up there during the Great Depression.

Ewbank needed an offensive line coach and he plucked Knox, then 31, out of the college ranks, where he had followed up his Juniata College playing career with coaching stints in high school and then at Wake Forest and Kentucky. Had it not been for the hire, Gang Green might not have drafted quarterback Joe Namath in 1965. He left to take the same position in 1967 with the NFL's Detroit Lions, two seasons before the Jets upset the heavily favored Baltimore Colts to win Super Bowl III.
