The former head coach of the Chiefs had been fighting Alzheimer’s since 2014, and was recently moved to hospice care.

Damn, this one hits hard. Schottenheimer is one of the most iconic men in the world of football over the past few decades.

The man was a titan in the coaching game.

He served as the head coach of the Browns, Chiefs, Redskins and Chargers before finally bowing out of the NFL.

Before he finally hung up his whistle, he earned 200 wins in the NFL as a head coach.

Now, at the age of 77, he’s passed onto the other side while surrounded by his family. Thankfully, he reportedly went peacefully.
