'At a loss for words': National Football League in shock over coach's tragic death

Darryl Drake the Bears wide receivers coach from 2004-12 dies at 62

Drake was entering his second season with the Steelers and had been present throughout training camp. Arians said Sunday that he spent time with Drake before Friday's game. I still can't believe he's no longer with us. The Louisville native was initially resistant to getting into coaching, but he eventually accepted an offer to join Western Kentucky's staff as a graduate assistant.

Pittsburgh Steelers wide receivers coach Darryl Drake, who spent more than 30 years moulding some of the best players at the position at both the collegiate and professional level, has died. "I've always considered Darryl a good friend". "He was a tremendous coach and even better man. Darryl will be missed by me and so many others that were fortunate enough to have their lives touched by him".

Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald honored Drake in a series of tweets Sunday afternoon.

"Our prayers and thoughts are with his wife, Sheila, his three daughters, his grandchildren, and (his) entire family during this hard time".

Meteorites are any pieces of the debris that survive their fiery forays through the atmosphere and land blackened on Earth. NWS meteorologist Lee Hendricks says Sunday night into early Monday morning is expected to yield clear skies, though.

Drake's next coaching stop took him to Arizona, where he would spend the next five years of his career.

Other Pittsburgh players, as well as other National Football League teams and players, also reacted to news of Drake's death on social media. It will be the first practice of any kind following Drake's passing.

Former Steelers wide receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey shared a photo of the pair during practice. Johnson, a former standout receiver at the University of Toledo who has shown flashes of his potential this summer during training camp, paid homage to Drake Sunday via Twitter. Tomorrow's not guaranteed. I'm glad the last thing he said to me was 'Kev, I love you, brother.' That was our last conversation, . As a result, the Steelers canceled all team activities until further notice or Monday at the soonest. The Steelers will return to the practice field on Tuesday, and will undoubtedly have Drake on their minds as they look to continue preparations for the 2019 season.
