    Marty has been moved to hospice. I always liked him despite who he coached for. Damned sad way to end. I have a friend who went the same way.

    Very sad, I had no idea he was sick. Always liked him, he had some heartbreaking defeats but he was a damn good coach, IMO.

    Longtime NFL coach Marty Schottenheimer has died at 77 due to Alzheimer’s.
    He has the eighth-most wins of all time.



    RIP coach thanks for the memories

    My neighbor had Alzheimer’s. I use to find him wandering in the alley lost and had to take him home a few times. Rough way to go.

    RIP Sir. You were one of my first Pittsburgh sports heroes. Got to see him play at Pitt for 63 and 64 seasons when my Dad and I had season tix in the end zone at ancient Pitt Stadium. Great teams back then. Fond memories.

    As a kid growing up in WNY, I remember him playing for the Bills in the ‘60s. He was a pretty popular player, even though he was a mainly a backup. He’d have played in the first pro football game I ever attended. The Bills and the Houston Oilers played in The dumpy War Memorial Stadium in downtown Buffalo in ‘66. The starting QBs were George Blanda and Jack Kemp. Lots of great memories of the AFL. RIP Marty.
