Full story here: http://49ers.com/pressbox/news_detail.php?PRKey=3220To honor Bill’s decade of leadership at the 49ers, we called Gov. Schwarzenegger on Monday asking that he approve a proclamation creating a Bill Walsh Day throughout the state of California. The governor knew Bill and was openly receptive to the idea, and we hope to provide you with more information on that shortly.
But it is most fitting that a man whose influence was felt so keenly on the field of play should be honored on that same field. So we are very pleased that the NFL has approved our request to honor Bill throughout the upcoming season with a “BW” commemorative decal that all 49ers players will wear on their helmets and all 49ers coaches will wear on their shirts. We also will ask for a moment of silence during the first pre-season game against Denver to honor Bill’s memory. Our Sept. 10 opening season Monday Night Football game will be a tribute to the memory of Bill Walsh and we are working with ESPN and the NFL on the details.
