Chargers' head coach Anthony Lynn provided the following statement on the passing of Tony Sparano, who coached alongside one another for several years in the NFL.
"Tony was a great husband, father and grandfather. He was all about his family, and my thoughts and prayers are with them right now during this incredibly difficult time. He set a tremendous example for everyone who crossed paths with him, and he also happened to be one hell of a coach. I'm better for having known Tony, and I'm proud to have been able to call him my friend." -Anthony Lynn
