A four-time letter winner in football as a tackle, and co-captain of the team as a senior when Juniata posted the first undefeated season in its history, he began his remarkable coaching career as an assistant for Bob Hicks at Juniata in 1954. He became the first coach to win division championships for three different franchises - the Los Angeles Rams, the Buffalo Bills, and the Seattle Seahawks. A head coach in the NFL for 22 seasons, he received the NFL "Coach of the Year" honor four times and coached his teams to 186 regular-season victories.

During Knoxís first season, the Bills went 5-11. Granted, it was a losing record, but on the bright side, seven of the 11 losses were by seven points or less. Buffalo was 7-9 in Ď79. This time, five of the nine losses were by seven or fewer points. The club seemed to be heading in the right direction.

During Knoxís third year, the Bills captured the AFC East and made the playoffs for the first time in six seasons. "We had a situation in the last game of the year - we were playing in San Francisco and itís raining and the field is sloppy, and either we were going to be 11-5 and win the division and go to the playoffs or we were going to be 10-6 and we would not make the playoffs. We won. That was a big game," said Knox, who was named the NFLís Coach of the Year by the Associated Press.

In his first season, Knox led the Seahawks to the AFC championship game. For the first time in its eight-year history, Seattle made the playoffs by earning a wildcard berth. After beating Denver and Miami, they lost to the Los Angeles Raiders, 30-14, in the AFC championship game. Knox and the Seahawks made the playoffs again in 1984, following a 12-4 season. Seattle's success came in spite of the absence of ace running back Curt Warner, who led the AFC in rushing as a rookie in 1983 with 1,449 yards. Warner was injured in the first game and missed the rest of the season. Knox led Seattle back to the playoffs in 1987 and to the team's only AFC West title in 1988. That year, they lost to the eventual AFC champion, the Cincinnati Bengals, in the first round of the playoffs. In nine seasons, Knox guided the Seahawks to an 83-67-0.
