His 2008 dolphins team was somewhat fascinating. Killed Belichick’s D with the wildcat.

Any cause of death?  Did Saprano have health problems.

 

2 unique facts I’ll always remember about him.  He worse sunglasses 24/7 because he had an accident while he was working in a fast food joint as a high school student.  I believe grease burned up his eyes and he was sensitive to light.  If this accident happened in 2018, he’s be a rich man.

 

The other is his name.  My friend and many other would see his name and call him “Tony Soprano” lead character from The Sopranos.  LOL

The first thing I thought of when I read this thread title was, “yeah, Tony Saprano died a few years ago”.

 

RIP, coach.

A guy I knew died similarly at the same age. Didn't even complain of pains beforehand. Just collapsed all of a sudden and that was it.

 

It's weird how your reality can change in the blink of an eye. Your closest friend, who you think you have a long future with, just disappears.

The coaching profession is so stressful and long hours. I think it takes a toll on health, it’s important to manage the stress and he may have been trying but wonder if that was a factor.

Wow..complained of chest pains, and still no evaluations? Or cause of death? Condolences to the family! RIP coach. 

For the record, I hated to see him on Miami's sideline. He was a tough, no nonsense guy and I feared the Fish were gonna overtake the division. Too young to die.....

Good lord. Very young. Sad to hear. Feel for his friends and family. I am sure the ones he loved knew how he felt. Seemed like an emotional guy and a good guy. A guy you’d like to have a couple beers with and hear some stories.
