On Saturday, Dan Reeves, who had served as a player, assistant and coach in the NFL, died in Atlanta at the age of 77.

Dan Reeves, who led the team with a career record of 201-174-2 (including the playoffs), is also one of the nine coaches who have won 20 games. He has participated in the Super Bowl less than Tom Brady and Bill Belichick.

In an official statement, Denver Broncos said: “Denver Broncos is deeply saddened by the death of legendary coach Dan Reeves. Dan Reeves is one of the coaches with the most wins in NFL history. He is the dominant force of Denver Broncos in the 1980s and the way to the championship. Laid the foundation.”
Atlanta Falcons boss Arthur Blank said: “Dan Reeves’s career as a player and coach is a legend. His decades of success in Dallas, Denver, New York and Atlanta are the best proof. On behalf of Atlanta, I extend my condolences to Dan’s family and friends. .”
