  • Saw a rumor on twitter that he passed away. Is this true, or just a sick act of a few classless jackasses named Kim and Chris?

  • I haven't seen anything reported on any of the national sites, the Seattle paper, or UW's own site.

  • That would definitely constitute big news around here. I wouldn't spread that one without serious confirmation.

  • Sad day for all Husky Fans, great man and had the fortitude to walk away from a game he loved because of what transpired here, I truly don't think he knew.

    Classy man and soft spoken from all I have seen of him at least publicly.

    The Huskies should do some tribute to him.

  • Very saddened by this. I sincerely hope he didn't have to see Saturday's game. And no, that is not shallow. Football is life and Don watched his life's work go to sh*t. Now I want Sark gone more than ever.

    RIP Dawgfather and thank you very much. And now that you can, please walk over and punch Bill Walsh in the face.

  • Great coach, one of the absolute greatest. Nothing but massive respect for Don James. Taught his players discipline, accountability, work ethic. He was married for 61 years. Watching his teams growing up has forever spoiled me as a football fan. He will be missed.

  • The space needle should forever be illuminated in Purple in the honor of Don James. Not solely because of his time as coach of the National Champion Washington Huskies, but because there were few men that did more to revitalize the great city of Seattle Washington.

    Aloha Coach. RIP.

  • RIP to the Dawgfather. I think those 80s and 90s Husky teams really set the tone for what football fans in this region love about our teams. We want to see dominant defenses that will hit opponents in the mouth and we back them up by being the most rabid fans in the nation. Pete and DJ are very different coaches but their teams similarly resonate with the fans.
