The Eagles announced Wednesday that former offensive line coach Bill Walsh, 84, died Sunday at his home in Atlanta.
Mr. Walsh spent 32 years coaching professional football and wrapped up his career with the Eagles from 1987 to '91 before retiring, the Eagles said in a statement.
A former star at Phillipsburg (N.J.) High School, Mr. Walsh played college football at Notre Dame, where he was an all-American center and a part of two national championship teams.
After a six-year career with the Pittsburgh Steelers and two all-pro selections, Mr. Walsh began his pro coaching career in 1960 with the Dallas Texans of the American Football League. The Texans became the Kansas City Chiefs in the NFL, and Mr. Walsh won a Super Bowl with them in 1970.
Mr. Walsh is survived by his wife of 63 years, Shirley; six children; nine grandchildren; and one great-grandchild.
