Coach "Ground Chuck" dies over weekend

Chuck Knox left shakes hands with then Seattle Seahawks coach Mike Holmgren after the franchise's last game at the Kingdome in December 1999

Hall of Fame defensive end Jack Youngblood posted a picture on Twitter thanking Knox for his trust and "allowing us to make our way to Canton".

Knox spent much of the latter portion of his life living in the Palm Springs area.

He had been battling symptoms of dementia, the Seattle Times reported. The Rams went a mixed 15-33 in Knox's three seasons earlier than the franchise moved to St. Louis.

The Seahawks began this week continuing to remember the transformational coach who led them to their first playoff victory, their first conference championship game-and their first time being identified like he was: a tough, no-excuses victor.

Called "Ground Chuck" for his run-first offenses, Knox was the National Football League coach of the year in 1973, 1980 and 1984, winning the award with all three teams he coached.

His former team the Los Angeles Rams also released a statement in light of his passing.

He then coached the Bills for five seasons and led them to the AFC playoffs in 1980 and "81. We hold his family in our thoughts and prayers during this hard time", according to the Rams statement.

The new edition will feature sets of Legendary, Epic and Origin skins, amounting to 15 skins in total, thrown in with purchase. The event promises more than 50 new items, including 8 Legendary skins and 3 Epic skins that can be found in loot boxes.

Legendary Seahawks coach Chuck Knox died Sunday at the age of 86, the team confirmed.

"His presence projected an exterior toughness, however merited instantaneous respect by the real care and concern he held for his gamers", the group stated in an announcement. One who helped define an era of NFL football - especially in the Pacific Northwest - and one who will be missed immensely.

"As Knox said himself, 'What you do speak so well, no one needs you to hear what you say'".

Knox was a two-way tackle at Juniata College in his native Pennsylvania. The sides parted ways due to contract dispute following the 1982 season. Knox departed following the 1991 campaign after a second losing season in a three-year span.

Knox compiled a regular-season record of 186-147-1, and went 7-11 in the playoffs during his 22 seasons as a head coach. In honor of the iconic plain blue and white hat Knox famously wore as the Seahawks' coach.

"You know that if you prepare well, you are probably going to play well", Knox once said. You have always been my dad.
