March 21, 2016 (San Diego) - Maybe it helped that the Huskies were without 6 feet, 8 inch forward Noah Dickerson.  Maybe it was heart. Maybe the over-12,000-strong sellout crowd at Viejas Arena made their chants be heard on the court. Maybe it was something else.

FORMER AZTECS, CHARGERS COACH CORYELL 85, DIES AFTER EXTENDED ILLNESS

 

Public services July 12 at Viejas Arena on SDSU campus

 

By Chris Mohr

 

July 5, 2010 (La Mesa) - Don Coryell, football coaching legend at the collegiate and professional levels, died Thursday (July 1) at Sharp Grossmont Hospital in La Mesa after an extended illness. He was 85.

 
Often credited as the father of the modern passing game, Coryell's offensive play schemes are used in one form or another throughout the NFL. These schemes also influenced defenses, which were forced to adapt to an increase in passing offense from their opponents. 
 
Coryell's coaching career got off to a fast start as head coach of Whittier College from 1957 to 1959. All three teams he coached there won conference titles. He moved on to become an assistant at USC in 1960, before taking over the head coaching job at San Diego State in 1961.
