Seattle Seahawks Chuck Knox Ring Of Honor


Chuck Knox


Chuck Knox was the ninth member inducted to the Ring. He spent nine of his 22 illustrious seasons at the helm of the Seahawks from 1983-91, during which time he led Seattle to 80 wins en route to becoming the winningest coach in club history, since surpassed by Mike Holmgren and Pete Carroll. Compared to 63 losses, his winning percentage of .559 is third among Seattle coaches with at least eight games coached. Knox posted six winning seasons with Seattle and led the Seahawks into postseason play four times. The Seahawks' three playoff wins under Knox were the only postseason wins in club history until 2005. Knox was named NFL Coach of the Year following both the 1983 and 1984 seasons, where Seattle posted a 21-11 record, advanced to the 1983 AFC Championship Game and in 1984 posted the best record in franchise history at the time with a 12-4 mark. One of the NFL's all-time winningest coaches, Knox ranks 10th in league history with 193 career victories (193-158), including playoffs. He was the first coach in NFL history to lead three different franchises to the playoffs and was named NFL Coach of the Year four times while coaching three different teams (L.A. Rams-1973, Bills-1980, Seahawks-1983-84).
