    Didn't see this posted anywhere, so.....

    Former offensive line coach for the majority of Tom Landry's tenure in Dallas. Replaced Bear Bryant at Texas A&M (ironically, he beat out Landry for the job, and was hired by Bum Bright). Developed great linemen such as Ralph Neely, Dave Manders, Rayfield Wright, John Niland, Blaine Nye, Pat Donovan and Herb Scott. RIP to a great coach, and Cowboy leader.

    I am surprised more old fans haven't chimed in. I hope his reunion with Coach Landry was great. This man was a beast, often bettering active players at some physical feats. He spent more time as Landry's Assistant than any other coach I believe.

    There were three other postings of his passing...

    I guess all lives have to enter an Autumn. He was a great coach and left a mark in an era of development and class.

    Bless all of his family and friends.

    one of the great coaches Tom had that no one noticed. Really it was the number of assistant coaches that he lost starting in the early 80's that really began the slow decline; he was unable to find good replacements mainly because Bum Bright refused to pay decent salaries.
