Sad does not begin to describe this: Randy Walker, head coach at Northwestern, died last night of a heart attack. The university's set to have a press conference at 10:00 a.m. Walker had checked himself into a hospital for chest pains before, and had been diagnosed with myocarditis, a relatively rare viral infection of the heart.
Walker is survived by his wife and two adult children. Condolences to all at Northwestern and Miami of Ohio who knew, worked with, and watched Walker coach his rollicking brand of football. Shocking just doesn't cover it right now.
