Longtime Tacoma-area resident and former assistant football coach at UW and UPS Myles Corrigan died Sunday at the age of 64.
He had coached under Don James on the Huskies' 1991 national championship team.
Most recently, he had been working as director of men's ministries at Life Center. He also was planning to work next fall with the Life Christian High School football team, where his son, Todd, is head coach.
Here is a link to a brief article from the Life Center web site.

Living Life Christian football
One of its own will continue to lead the Life Christian Academy football team.
Todd Corrigan, a 2000 graduate of Life Christian, was named the Eagles' coach last month.
"I played football on the first team we had here," said Corrigan, who has been an assistant for two seasons and a teacher at the school for three years. "The fact that it's my alma mater and football is my passion is why I wanted this. There's no better place to be than at Life Christian."
Corrigan replaces Ross Hjelseth, who retired after leading the Eagles to the Class 2B state semifinals and an 11-3 record in 2007. Hjelseth had been Life Christian's only coach since the school opened its doors in 1994.
Corrigan said his father, Myles, will be his offensive coordinator. Myles Corrigan was tight ends coach at the University of Washington from 1985 to '93.
