Marty Schottenheimer has early onset Alzheimer's, according to ESPN Cleveland. The report said Schottenheimer, 73, was diagnosed with the brain disease roughly five years ago. 

Despite the diagnosis the 73-year-old is expected to attend the team's 30th reunion this weekend in Cleveland remembering the 1986 season.

Schottenheimer coached the Browns in the early 80s. That 1986 team lost to the Broncos in overtime of the AFC Championship Game after Denver quarterback John Elway led a memorable fourth-quarter comeback.

Schottenheimer was also head coach of the Kansas City Chiefs and San Diego Chargers.
