He was arguably the guy that made University of Washington football great back in the 70's, 80's and early 90's. And he won at least a share of a national title in 1991.
He is Don James and he passed away Sunday at the age of 80 after a long battle with Pancreatic Cancer.
James coached the Huskies from 1978 until he retired in 1992. In that stretch of time, he won 157 games losing only 53.
He was inducted to the College Football Hall of Fame in 1997. No word yet on Washington's plans to honor James next week.
