Legendary Boston Celtics Coach Red Auerbach Dies at 89

I can't let this piece of sports history pass by without mentioning it here. But a legendary NBA coach has passed away.

Red Auerbach of the Boston Celtics led his team to nine NBA titles as thier head coach during the 1950s & 60s and seven more in the 1970s & 80s. He was 89 when he passed away and was said to have died of a heart attack according to an NBA official who didn't want to be indentified.

Auerbach was also the winningest coach in the NBA but Lenny Wilkens overtook Auerbach's record of 938 games.
