Australian Rules Football Coach Stabbed to Death
His son has been charged with murder. Police say Phil Walsh, the 55-year-old coach of the Adelaide Crows, was stabbed to death today following a domestic dispute. His wife was hospitalized with minor injuries, and his son Cy, 26, is reportedly in custody and undergoing a psychiatric assessment. A former player and championship-winning coach, Walsh — known for “boundless energy and enthusiasm” — got his first head-coaching gig last year. Devastated by the news, his club has canceled its Sunday match against Geelong.
