In 1979, he took over the Forty Niners top post, leading that NFL franchise to three Super Bowls. He is a member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame. / He returned to Stanford in 1992. The Cardinal tied for the Pac-10 championship that year. In his two Stanford tours of duty, Walsh's teams have won three post-season bowl games in three tries."
