Former Browns, Chiefs and Chargers coach Marty Schottenheimer

"No, no, this is sad news. I loved Art Modell, and I was just thinking of him yesterday. He was a man's man, someone you wanted to stand shoulder-to-shoulder with. He gave me my first head coaching job, and we had the most fun working together. We didn't win the biggest prize, but we were awfully close, and we had a ball trying to get there. Art made it fun. His humor was the best, and my wife, Pat, always said what a gentleman he is -- classy, and he ran his franchise that way. I have only good memories of Art." -- Marty Schottenheimer
