He will always be who we thought he was.

Rest in Peace, Coach.

He will be missed.

Those Vikings teams he coached were fantastic fun to watch. Lots of character, and really aggressive on offense. Any play could be a big one. He was a fantastic offensive mind, and a top-tier evaluator of talent.

Had 8 winning seasons out of 10 for the Vikings. Was as good a human being as he was a coach as well. I'm proud to say he coached my Vikings.

And runningback (and later runningback coach) for the Iowa Hawkeyes. Guy had a full life but still died too young.

Looking at these stars suddenly dwarfed my own troubles and all the gravities of terrestrial life. I thought of their unfathomable distance, and the slow inevitable drift of their movements out of the unknown past into the unknown future. H.G. Wells

His greatest accomplishment may well be that in his eleven seasons with the Vikings he had eight different quarterbacks start games.

Rich Gannon, Sean Salisbury, Jim McMahon, Warren Moon, Brad Johnson, Randall Cunningham, Jeff George and Daunte Culpepper.

He did not have the success in AZ that he did in Minnesota, but he laid the groundwork for all the success AZ has been enjoying. Before Denny Green, it was a giant mess and had been for decades.

RIP Coach
