Coach Tuesday

R.I.P. Turk Schonert

Recommended Posts

Being 66, it certainly catches my attention when someone younger than me meets his end.  RIP, Turk.

RIP to our rather unceremoniously removed former OC. Way too young. Very sad.

He was the one fired right before the season and replaced with AVP by Dick.

RIP Turk, way too soon.

 

He was the Bills QB coach 2 different times before being promoted to OC his 2nd time here.

When I was younger, I could not understand why older people cared so much about death. Now, I understand... when you start losing people you care about and people that you shared your life with in various pursuits, THEN death really hits home, especially if they are younger than you.

That's for sure. I lost my best friend of 50+ years not too long ago. It's shocking and makes you realize nothing is guaranteed you. I feel for Turk's family and friends. That is very young.

He developed a pretty good offensive scheme for the bills in 08. Wss fired right before the 09 season. Remember him calling out jauron and saying jauron wanted a pop Warner offense

Didn’t hear about Goodwin or Robey-Coleman. Am I better off not knowing?

I happen to be a (semi-retired) church pastor, so I've done a lot of funerals.  I did one recently for a friend who was a year older than me.  Ints a lot tougher doing a funeral for a 67 year old than an 85 year old, especially now.
