Dan Reeves played for the Dallas Cowboys from 1965-1972. During his eight seasons with the team, the Cowboys went to the Super Bowl twice, culminating in a 24-3 victory over the Miami Dolphins in Super Bowl VI. After his retirement, he went on to become a Cowboys' Assistant Coach under Tom Landry until 1981, during which time they made three more Super Bowl appearances, including a win over the Denver Broncos in Super Bowl XII.
In 1981, Reeves was named head coach and Vice President of the Denver Broncos, making him the youngest head coach in the league at the time, at age 37. With John Elway as his quarterback, Reeves piloted the team to three more Super Bowl appearances in his 12 seasons at the helm.
Reeves then took over as head coach of the New York Giants from 1993 – 1996, and in 1993, he was named NFL Coach of the Year by the Associated Press. Reeves then went on to coach the Atlanta Falcons from 1997 – 2003. In 1998, Reeves won his second Coach of the Year Award for leading the Falcons to a 14-2 record and his history-making ninth Super Bowl appearance at Super Bowl XXXIII.
During his 22 years as a head coach in the NFL, Reeves won 201 games, ranking him 7th All-Time. All five coaches ahead of him on the career list of victories that are eligible have already been enshrined in the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
