**STATEMENT FROM BILLS GM MARV LEVY
REGARDING THE PASSING OF BILL WALSH**
"My friend, Bill Walsh, possessed all of the admirable qualities that a person might hope to find in an outstanding football coach.
"He was an innovative, optimistic, high principled and highly motivated master of the game. He was the consummate teacher of fundamentals, and of strategy and tactics.
"He played by the rules, and he cared deeply about the players, the coaches, the fans, and the about the game itself.
"It was my great privilege to first know Bill when we coached together at the University of California (Berkeley) in the early 1960's. Over the years we remained friends, and I was deeply saddened to learn that he had passed away.
"His legacy will live on. Bill Walsh's name and his accomplishments will be remembered and revered so long as the great game of football is played."
