49ers legend and Colts RB coach Tom Rathman retires

Love Rathman. Gore credits him for making him the back he is as @N4L said. I know Shanny said he really wanted to keep him on staff when he took over, but he had made promises to Bobby Turner about bringing him on if he ever became a HC. I can't remember how many, but Rathman survived many staffs here in SF as one of the few coaches retained.

I know that Frank Gore always talks about how much rathman helped him become the running back he is


Yep, they both came out of college the same year. I keed, I keed. 

Rathman was so good. Great blocker and really good receiver. When your FULLBACK gets over 600 yds receiving in a season, you know your offense is unstoppable.
