Legendary NFL coach Dan Reeves, who ranks 10th all-time in wins and reached nine Super Bowls as a player and coach, passed away on Saturday morning at the age of 77.
Reeves’ death was first reported by Alex Marvez of SiriusXM NFL Radio.
Reeves began his 38-year career in pro football as a hard-nosed Dallas Cowboys running back. He turned that into a 23-year head coaching career with the Denver Broncos, Giants and Atlanta Falcons.
He led the Broncos to three AFC titles, took the Falcons to a Super Bowl, and was named AP Coach of the Year in 1993, his first of four seasons with the Giants.
His family confirmed his death to NFL Network.
“Legendary NFL player and coach Dan Reeves passed away early this morning, peacefully and surrounded by his loving family at his home in Atlanta, Ga.,” the family’s statement read. “He passed away at age 77 due to complications from a long illness. His legacy will continue through his many friends, players and fans as well as the rest of the NFL community. Arrangements are still to be determined.”
Reeves’ 190 career regular season wins are only three behind late Pittsburgh Steelers legend Chuck Noll.
