Wilf on passing of Walsh

Vikings owner Zygi Wilf issued a statement on the passing of legendary San Francisco 49ers head coach Bill Walsh.
"The Minnesota Vikings’ family is saddened to learn of the passing of Bill Walsh," Wilf said. "Coach Walsh’s immense impact on the game of football will continue for decades to come, ensured by his stunning on-field success, his brilliant pioneering in the areas of coaching and game strategy, and his legacy of numerous coaching pupils.
"However, it was his impeccable personal character and integrity, his commitment to diversity, and his dedication to excellence that led me, as a new owner in the NFL, to personally seek advice from Coach Walsh for building a first-class organization," Wilf said. "We wanted to learn from the best, and the lessons of Bill Walsh, both the coach and the man, will live on forever in our hearts."
