Bruce DeHaven Coaches Despite Cancer Diagnosis

About the Blog

Peter King of The MMQB featured the story of veteran special teams coach Bruce DeHaven in his Monday Morning Quarterback column today.  Known as one of the best special teams coaches in NFL history, DeHaven was recently diagnosed with prostate cancer but made the decision to continue to coach the Carolina Panthers special teams units this season and beyond.

DeHaven will be assisted this year by another veteran special teams coach, Russ Purnell.  Despite the difficult circumstances, DeHaven has vowed to keep fighting and called himself “the luckiest man on the face of the earth.”
