Legendary NFL Coach Dies

Hank Stram was one of the AFL's pioneers, serving as one of the league's original coaches before guiding the Kansas City Chiefs to a pair of Super Bowl appearances. The hall of famer has died at a suburban new orleans hospital at age 82. Stram had been in declining health for several years and was in a wheelchair during his 2003 induction ceremony at Canton. His son attributed his death to complications from diabetes. Stram began his pro coaching career with the Dallas Texans in 1960, and moved with the franchise to Kansas City.  He led the Chiefs to the first Super Bowl, where they lost to Green Bay 35-10. But Kansas City captured Super Bowl IV by downing Minnesota 23-7. Stram was 124-76-10 with the Chiefs before spending two years as the New Orleans Saints' head coach. He remains the Chiefs' all-time winningest coach. Chiefs owner Lamar Hunt today called Stram one of the NFL's most innovative and creative coaches, adding that he also was one of its most innovative and creative personalities as well.
