    Funeral services for NFL legend, Don Coryell, will be held Monday, July 12, at San Diego State's Viejas Arena. Coryell, one of the most innovative coaches in NFL history, died Thursday at the age of 85.

    The former head coach of the San Diego Chargers, Coryell became famous after his offensive package, known as Air Coryell, became one of the most vicious passing attacks in the NFL.
    Coryell was the head coach at San Diego State from 1961 - 1972, where he remained a fixture.

    He is the first coach to win 100 games in the NFL and at the college level.

    The memorial will start at 2 pm.
