SAN DIEGO -- A memorial service for Don Coryell has been scheduled for July 12 at San Diego State.

Coryell, the innovative coach whose Air Coryell offense produced some of the most dynamic passing attacks in NFL history, died Thursday. He was 85.

Coryell coached at San Diego State from 1961-72 before coaching the St. Louis Cardinals and San Diego Chargers.

He is the first coach to win 100 games in both college and the NFL.

The memorial service will begin at 2 p.m. at Viejas Arena. A school spokesman says the Coryell family has indicated this will be the only service.
