Coach Sweeney had as much or more of a
positive impact on my life than any one
person. As a youngster growing up in Butte it was inspiring to watch his
teams ( Butte Central ) play and win often against all odds including a state championship. He gave me the opportunity to coach as a graduate assistant at Montana State and later as an assistant at Washington State University. My only regret is that I did not have the opportunity to play for him. Every place he was head coach got better and he left them much better than when he found them to the benefit of his successors. I learned a great deal about football from him but, more importantly, learned a lot about life.
Of those many things one stands out.
He would talk about never underestimating the power of the human
equation, of the human spirit. I did not fully understand and appreciate that until later in my personal and professional life Always remembered it and was able to personally and professionally witness and experience the positive power of the human equation, of the human spirit.
Coach Sweeney's life as a coach and person is a testimony to the power of the human equation, of the human spirit.
It is impossible to relate the feelings one has about Coach Sweeney. We are fortunate that he was part of our lives. That will always be.

He is in a great place now and there
may the wind be always at your back, the sun shine warm upon your face, The rain fall gently in your fields and until we meet again may God hold you in the palm of his hand.

Our hearts and prayers go out to the Sweeney family.

Bill, Gwen, Lisa, Aaron and Lily Cords

You were the best and the players who had the honor to play fo you are today better men or it. I truly enjoyed every minute I spent with you on and off the field. You will alaways be missed but never forgotten. Good bye old friend.

To the Sweeney family. Keep the good thoughts of your father in your minds & hearts. I remember my brush with him. It was in Las Vegas when he won his 199th game. I had a sign that said 199. I hollered at him coach 199 coach & he looked up in the stands & grined & said 199. I will truly miss him as a Bulldog fan & I know he touched us all in some way. RIP oh great Coach. I will miss you truly.

Mr. Sweeney seemed like a person who lived his life to the fullest. Now he's asleep hoping to hear the words Lazarus heard when Jesus resurrected him saying "Lazarus come out" meaning from the grave. So for now rest in peace.
