CINCINNATI (WKRC) - About 10 months ago, Coach Sam Wyche was dying.

On Thursday night, he's trying to win a golf tournament.

The former Bengals coach is in Georgia for the charity tournament held by Arizona Cardinals Head Coach Bruce Arians.

Wyche got a new heart back in September. It was just in the nick of time, too.

Doctors had arranged to send him to hospice.

These days, the 72-year-old is living a relatively healthy life with a heart from someone he doesn't know.

But there is one thing he thinks he knows about the donor.

"All I know is he's about two hours north of Charlotte, which puts him right in the middle of Pittsburgh Steeler territory. Not sure how long I can live with that thought,” said Wyche.

Wyche says he's thankful everyday he's still alive.

He also says he's going to win the tournament.
