San Diego State coach Brady Hoke mentioned the July 1 death of legendary coach Don Coryell during his remarks on Tuesday.

The man whose “Air Coryell” offenses were instrumental in the development of the modern passing game coached at San Diego State from 1961 to 1972, going 104-19-2 in that time.

“The legacy that coach Coryell had at San Diego State – and still has, obviously – is something that as a football program we’re going to be very, very accountable to,” Hoke said. “It was a big loss for the Aztec community.”
