    This is sad news. He was an effective coach and a good guy. At one point Tex Schramm was considering hiring him as HC around '85 when he was wondering if Landry would retire. RIP, Marty.

    Eighth in all-time wins, and 7th in regular season wins. He's the only coach with over 200 wins who is not in the HOF. Had some horrible luck in AFC title games in '86 and '87 with Cleveland.

    By all accounts a good man as well.

    Fired from his last job with SD after going 14-2, because he lost to Tom Brady. Crazy.
