Longtime NFL coach Marty Schottenheimer has been moved into a hospice facility in North Carolina, his family announced Wednesday.
Schottenheimer, 77, the winningest coach in NFL history without a Super Bowl or NFL championship, was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease in 2014. His family said he was placed in hospice care Saturday and was in stable condition.
“As a family we are surrounding him with love and are soaking up the prayers and support from all those he impacted through his incredible life,” his wife Pat Schottenheimer said in a family statement, according to ESPN’s Chris Mortensen. “In the way he taught us all, we are putting one foot in front of the other … one play at a time.”

Schottenheimer compiled a 44-27 record during his time in Cleveland while suffering a few devastating playoff losses in the 1980s against the Denver Broncos and former quarterback John Elway.

He then coached the Chiefs for 10 seasons, winning 10 or more games six times but never the conference title.
Schottenheimer spent a single season as Washington’s head coach (8-8), before taking over as the coach of the Chargers, where he earned a 47-33 record. His 2006 team, led by running back LaDainian Tomlinson, went 14-2 in his final year in San Diego.
He has the eighth most wins as a coach in NFL history.
Schottenheimer’s son, Brian, served as Pete Carroll’s offensive coordinator for the past three seasons with the Seattle Seahawks before being fired by the team earlier this year. He was recently signed by the Jacksonville Jaguars as passing game coordinator.
