Don Coryell finalist for Hall of Fame (again) but competition tough

Don Coryell again is a finalist for the Pro Football Hall of Fame, and this time his competition includes only fellow coaches.

That doesn’t mean it will be any easier for the former Chargers and Cardinals (and San Diego State) coach to be inducted.

Eight coaches were included Thursday among the 38 finalists for the Hall of Fame’s Centennial Class of 2020, a group chosen by a 25-member panel of pro football experts. The class was created in conjunction with the NFL’s centennial and it is separate from the regular voting for the Hall of Fame that takes place each year the day before the Super Bowl.
