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

"He was, in anybody's measure, one of the greatest coaches in the history of the franchise, and one of the best in the National Football League".

Legendary NFL head coach Chuck Knox has passed away at the age of 86. He led Seattle to their first division title, playoff win and conference championship appearance and was the first coach in National Football League history to lead three different teams to the National Football League playoffs.

Former Los Angeles Rams and Seattle Seahawks head coach Chuck Knox waits on the bench before he is honored at halftime by the Seahawks on September 24 2005.

Nicknamed "Ground Chuck" for his teams' run-first offenses, Knox went 80-63 during the regular season over nine years as Seattle's coach. He guided four teams to conference championship games - the Rams three times in the 1970s and the Seahawks in 1983 - but never reached a Super Bowl.

In 1984, the Seahawks went 12-4, but couldn't beat out John Elway's Broncos for the AFC West title. They gained their first playoff recreation, defeating the Raiders 13-7. But Marino and the Dolphins got their revenge in the divisional round, shredding the Seahawks 31-10. Knox would probably still win games today with the right players. In 2005, Knox was inducted into the Seahawks Ring of Honor in recognition of his achievements with the franchise.

His former team the Los Angeles Rams also released a statement in light of his passing. He coached the Rams (54-15-1) from 1973 to 1977, the Bills (37-36) from 1978 to 1982, the Seahawks from 1983 to 1991 and the Rams (15-33) again from 1992 to 1994. He remained with the Jets until 1966, and was then offensive line coach with the Detroit Lions from 1967-1972.
