Tributes 

Bill Center wrote Jim Hanifan, who was Don Coryell’s offensive line coach at San Diego State and with the St. Louis Cardinals and later was the Cardinals’ head coach passed away today. Smart and passionate. Chris Hornbostel wrote Summer of 1997, Jim Hanifan and 6 Rams offensive linemen came into Bristol, and I waited on them. Coach Hanifan was incredibly nice, & kept the entire table laughing & hanging on every word he said. Waiters have good instincts for recognizing a good person...and he was that. RIP.
