The following is a statement from Washington Redskins owner Daniel M. Snyder on the passing of Bill Walsh:
"Bill Walsh was one of the first people I met after buying the Redskins in 1999. We spent time together at League events and he was generous with his guidance for a rookie owner. His legacy is on display every time an NFL team takes the field. My prayers are with his family at this sad time."
The following is a statement from Washington Redskins head coach Joe Gibbs on the passing of Bill Walsh:
"I was saddened to hear the news of Bill Walsh's passing today. My son [Coy Gibbs] had the opportunity to play under him at Stanford. His contributions to the NFL are well documented and his West Coast Offense remains prevalent throughout the League today. He was truly a pioneer for the game. He was a tremendous competitor and innovator and he leaves a legacy through all those who had the opportunity to learn from him. Our thoughts and prayers are with the Walsh family."
