Very many years in the NFL.

Marty Schottenheimer, one of the oldest and most respected coaches in the NFL, has died at the age of 77. Schottenheimer has suffered from Alzheimer's in recent years.

He coached in Cleveland, Kansas City, Washington and San Diego and retired in 2006 after leading the Chargers to the playoffs.

Since 2014, Schottenheimer has struggled with Alzheimer’s and today passed away at his home in Charlotte, North Carolina.



With a balance of 205 wins, 139 losses and one draw, Schottenheimer is considered an excellent regular season coach, but in the playoffs is considered a failure.

He has been there 13 times, including twice to the AFC Finals.

Especially remember the 1987 game against Denver, when Schottenheimer coached Cleveland and saw John Elway lead the Broncos from his yard line, win the game and move his team to the Super Bowl.



"I never got to a game under Marty where I did not feel ready," the legendary San Diego runner told Danian Tomlinson, "he wanted us to understand every detail of the game. He was a great character and cared about the athlete and the human being."

Super Bowl: The audience has switched to streaming

Only 96.4 million viewers were recorded on the CBS Super Bowl ratings index, well below any Super Bowl game in the last decade.

However, the abandonment of TV channels can be explained by sticking to the phones - for the first time more than a billion minutes of streaming were recorded.

The top rating was recorded in Kansas City, with 60 percent viewing, then Boston (because of Tom Brady) with 57 percent viewing and finally Tampa Bay with 52.3 percent viewing.
