Dan Devine, former college and NFL coach, dead at 77
COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) -- Dan Devine, who led Notre Dame to the 1977 national championship and also coached at Missouri and in the NFL, died Thursday. He was 77.
Devine died in the Phoenix area, the University of Missouri said.
Devine, a member of the college football Hall of Fame, went 172-57-9 (.742) over 22 seasons at Arizona State, Missouri and Notre Dame.
After leaving Missouri in 1970, he became coach and general manager of the Green Bay Packers, going 25-27-4 from 1971-74.
He took over at Notre Dame in 1975, replacing Ara Parseghian, and led the Irish to the national title in his third season.
Devine, who had been sick for some time, underwent quintuple bypass surgery last February in Mesa, Ariz., and had post-surgery complications and did not recover well, his family said at the time.
His son, Dan Jr., is football coach at Rock Bridge High School in Columbia. Devine's wife, Joanne, died in 2000.
