Legendary coach Chuck Klausing passed away this afternoon. I knew coach for 50 years. He hired me in 1985 at Carnegie Mellon University and for that I will be eternally grateful. I worked many camps for and with Chuck over the years and was able to hire his grandson Jeff Simmons on our offensive staff at Carnegie Mellon 12 years ago. Jeff is still coaching there and he and I continue to do summer camps together and talk weekly. Jeff will continue Chuck's great tradition. Coach was a mentor and friend to many who frequent this site.

Rest in peace coach with a job well done. you have made all of us better!
