    Dan Fouts has been passionately championing him for years. Probably still is.

    I saw Coryell work his magic at SD State, St Louis and with the Chargers. Most entertaining coach ever. By the time he got to the Chargers his system was refined and every game gave us something unique to see.

      Yes, Fouts has LONG been a staunch supporter, but he is the only guy left (watch John Madden's speech at Coryell's funeral on youtube if you want to see a legend pay his respects to another legend).

        One year (2009) Fouts sent a letter to every Hall of Fame voter, urging that Coryell be elected:

                The final HOF committee is done during the Super Bowl week. I don't know when they will pick the contributor and coach to go to that committee.

                  Every year that Don isn't in makes a mocker of the Hall.
                  That is all.

                    Thanks Steve. I hated Madden as the Raiders HC, for obvious reasons. But he was a great announcer and listening to that eulogy, it is clear he was a great man. I could listen to Madden for hours. So entertaining. And smart, too. RIP both John and Don. Two greats.
