    49ers and the State of California to Honor Bill Walsh



    To 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.

    Good on the 49ers, NFL, ESPN, and the Gov to honor such a visionary man and extraordinary teacher. Innovators don't come along very often and we all were witness to the rise of precision football executed flawlessly. Half the teams in the league now have coaches that can draw their philosophy from what BW perfected in SF. What an incredible guy!
