One indication that this is a small newspaper obit:

"In 1972, Michaels began a 10-year stretch as head coach of the Jets"--Never mind that he didn't start until 1977.

He did get screwed over by Weeb Ewbank and the Jets when Charlie Winner (Ewbank's son-in-law) got the HC job in 1974.

When Walt Michaels became the Jets head coach in 1977, it was written that he had been passed over for the job twice. First, for Charley Winner, and second for Lou Holtz in 1976.
