Post Stramm passes away

Hank Stram, the most successful coach in American Football League history and a TV and radio broadcaster for nearly two decades, died yesterday in a suburban New Orleans hospital. He was 82.


Associated Press
Kansas City Chiefs Coach Hank Stram is carried from the field after his team defeated the Minnesota Vikings on Jan. 11, 1970, in Super Bowl IV in New Orleans.

Mr. Stram died near his home in Covington, La., across Lake Pontchartrain from New Orleans. He had been in declining health for several years, and his son attributed the death to complications from diabetes.

Mr. Stram, a member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame, was credited with developing the 3-4 defense, the two-tight-end formation and the moving pocket. When his coaching career was over, he worked as an analyst for CBS, first on television and then in the radio booth, where he called "Monday Night Football" alongside Jack Buck.

Mr. Stram did radio commentary for four Super Bowls, becoming the first person to participate in the National Football League championship game both as a winning coach, with the Kansas City Chiefs, and broadcaster.

Mr. Stram, who had suffered from diabetes for several years, was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2003. Too weak to stand or walk on his own, he watched his prerecorded induction speech from a wheelchair.

here's the rest...

He was an innovator in the NFL, a legend in the greatest sense of the word.
