Former Cincinnati Bengals head coach Sam Wyche has died at the age of 74, WKRC-TV reports.
Wyche, who led the Bengals to their last Super Bowl appearance in 1988, died Thursday. Before becoming a coach, Wyche was also a quarterback for the Bengals, Washington Redskins, St. Louis Cardinals, and Detroit Lions.
He is perhaps best known for introducing the “no-huddle offense” to the NFL as a normal offensive strategy, rather than only at the end of halves.
Wyche had recently been in an ongoing battle with cancer. He is the second-winningest coach in Bengals history.
