Coach Sparano was head coach at NCAA Division 2 New Haven for what happened to be the years I was an undergrad there.  The school's greatest season was his fourth as head coach, a 12-2 season in 1997 that saw New Haven become the smallest school to play for the Division 2 National Championship (they got steamrolled, but that's irrelevant now).  Seeing that 1997 team play was something special, and it is sad their leader is now gone.

Not necessarily.  It really depends on a lot of factors and what the doctors told him or what he went in for.

I went to the ER once for chest pains and after tests for major problems came back negative they released me a few hours later.  You're kinda on your own after you get released.  YMMV.

Girlfriend: Oh, is that the coach that I hated? The one that always had those stupid sunglasses?
Me: Yes
Girlfriend: Oh, that sucks. Probably had a heart attack since he was so high-strung all the time.

Being the Dolphins Coach he didnt get to have many good times.  When he did though he could be over the top.

As a Dolphins fan, I'll forever have a soft spot for him.  Ultimately, the Wild Cat offense as a gadget play, but helped the Phins to be the one AFC East team to take a division win from the Pats during the reign of Belicheck.  I'm fully aware Brady was injured that year, but the Pats still went 11-5.

RIP, Mr. amazingly emotional, I'm one of the guys, guy.

Player's coach for sure. He was fun to watch.

Did they do a stress test? A couple years ago I went into the ER for chest pains and after everything came back negative they put me on a treadmill and ran the shiat out of me to see if my ticker could handle it. Mine could, but TFA makes me wonder if they skipped that step with Sparano.
