Dan Reeves Passes Away
NFL Week 17 - Dan Reeves, best known for coaching the Denver Broncos and Atlanta Falcons to Super Bowl appearances, has passed away. He was 77.
Reeves played 100 games for the Dallas Cowboys in the 1960s and 1970s. His best season was in 1966, when he led the NFL with 16 touchdowns scored and finished in the top five in yards from scrimmage. He played in two Super Bowls for Dallas, including a 24-3 win over Miami in Super Bowl VI.
In 12 years as head coach of the Denver Broncos, Reeves went 110-73-1 and reached the Super Bowl three times in four years. He then went 31-33 as coach of the New York Giants, named Coach of the Year in 1993 for going 11-5 with a team that had gone 6-10 the year before. He later went 49-59-1 as coach of the Atlanta Falcons, winning another Coach of the Year award in 1998 for leading yet another team to the Super Bowl (a loss to his former employers, the Broncos). He is one of nine coaches in league history with at least 200 wins (including the playoffs).
