Reeves began his NFL career playing for the Dallas Cowboys. Reeves played eight seasons with the Cowboys before becoming an assistant coach.
Reeves, who had spent a number of years under the tutelage of Tom Landry before he became the Denver Broncos’ youngest coach, was a former student. Reeves led the team to three Super Bowl appearances, and had a record of 110-73-1.
He was a coach for two other NFL teams, the New York Giants (NFL) and the Atlanta Falcons (NFL). He helped them to the 1998 Super Bowl.
Our thoughts and prayers are with the Reeves Family.
