Some of legendary BYU football coach LaVell Edwards' best memories in the game came when he was a defensive coach at BYU in the early 1970s and shared an office with fellow assistant Dick Felt.
"We had a lot of fun," Edwards said. "Dick was not only a great player and great coach, he was also a wonderful person. He was a low-key, soft-spoken guy, and a very patient coach. Had great rapport with his players and fellow coaches. Just a lot of fun to be around."
Felt was found dead in his home by neighbors on Saturday morning when he failed to attend a granddaughter's wedding, Edwards said. Richard G. Felt was 79.
