Tom Landry

Died February 12, 2000

IRVING, Texas (AP) - Tom Landry, the Dallas Cowboys coach who led America's Team to five Super Bowls and was famous for pacing the sidelines in a business suit and felt hat, died Saturday. He was 75.

Landry had been undergoing treatment since May for acute myelogenous leukemia.

Baylor University Medical Center issued a news release on behalf of Landry's family, saying, "He will never be forgotten by all of us whose lives he has touched so deeply."

"Tom Landry's familiar presence on the Dallas Cowboys' sideline for three decades represented the NFL at its best," NFL commissioner Paul Tagliabue said in a statement Saturday. "He will always rank as one of the all-time great coaches and as an architect of one of the most successful teams in sports history."
