RIP to a marvelous coach and a classy guy.
I had a feeling it was worse than originally stated once they officially promoted McDermott to DC, but the media kept it under wraps that it was life-threatening already. Pretty amazing that he was able to coach through most of last year, especially in the playoffs when he was clearly struggling but still made it out to the games to coach from the booth.
And yes, he died of melanoma.
One of my favorite football guys ever. RIP.
