Statement from the Detroit Lions on the passing of Gunther Cunningham

"Gunther Cunningham will forever be remembered as one of the great men of our game. He left a lasting impact on every person who was fortunate enough to work alongside him during his more than 47 years as a coach - including 34 years in the National Football League, the final eight of which were spent here in Detroit. Our organization is truly honored and proud to have been included in his distinguished coaching legacy. We extend our heartfelt sympathies to his wife, René, and their entire family."
