DAN REEVES, Former NFL player & Coach Dead at 77

Dan Reeves, the legendary NFL player, and coach died quietly at his home in Atlanta, GA, early this morning at the age of 77 due to dementia issues.

Reeves played in nine Super Bowls throughout his 38-year NFL career, the third most for a player.

He completed his whole eight-season playing career with the Dallas Cowboys, who signed him as an undrafted free agent in 1965.

From 1981 through 2003, he was the head coach of the Denver Broncos and the Atlanta Falcons, mostly.

Reeves was the Broncos' head coach for 12 seasons, leading the team to three title appearances in Super Bowl XXI, XXII, and XXIV, all of which ended in loss.

He was just the third coach in history to take two separate teams to the Super Bowl, an accomplishment shared by only four other coaches.

Reeves has the most postseason victories and Super Bowl appearances among NFL head coaches who have not won a title, as one of just nine NFL head coaches to win 200 career games.

He is also tied with Jeff Fisher for the most regular-season defeats in NFL history (165), albeit Reeves has a higher winning %.

Only Reeves and Marty Schottenheimer have not been inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame despite having 200 career wins.

 In 2014, he was inducted into the Broncos Ring of Fame.
