Stanford Football Changes Thursday Practice Schedule
Aug. 8, 2007
Stanford, Calif. - The Stanford Football team has changed its practice schedule for this Thursday, August 10. Stanford's practice time on Thursday at the Elliott Football Practice Fields is now scheduled for 7:00 pm, PT. The practice is open to the public and free of charge.
Members of the squad will also participate in a private memorial being held for the late Bill Walsh on the Stanford University campus earlier in the day on Thursday, greeting guests both upon their entry into and exit from the service.
Walsh, who passed away at the age of 75 on July 30 after a long battle with leukemia. was the head football coach at Stanford on two occasions from 1977-78 and 1992-94. His two Stanford head coaching stints sandwiched his 10-year run as the head coach of the San Francisco 49ers when he led the club to three Super Bowl titles (1982, 1985, 1989) and was twice named NFL Coach of the Year (1981, 1984).
