Feb. 3 (UPI) -- Former NFL head coach Marty Schottenheimer was moved to a hospice facility near his Charlotte, N.C., home over the weekend because of complications from Alzheimer's disease, his family said Wednesday.
The 77-year-old Schottenheimer, who was diagnosed with Alzheimer's in 2014, is listed in stable condition.
"As a family we are surrounding him with love and are soaking up the prayers and support from all those he impacted through his incredible life," Schottenheimer's family said in a statement. "In the way he taught us all, we are putting one foot in front of the other ... one play at a time."
Schottenheimer coached the Cleveland Browns, Kansas City Chiefs, Chargers and Washington. He posted a 205-139-1 career record, including the playoffs.
He was named the NFL's Coach of the Year in 2004 with the Chargers. His NFL coaching career concluded in 2006 following a 14-2 season with the Chargers and a divisional-round loss in the postseason.
Schottenheimer also played six seasons as a linebacker for the Buffalo Bills (1965-68) and New England Patriots (1969-70).
The Chiefs inducted Schottenheimer into the team's Hall of Fame in 2010.
