    Same here! He was the HC when I started cheering these guys on as a kid. Brought a lot to the game. Good HC in NFL, NCAA and ever CFL. Class act too.

    Was also one of Bear Bryant's infamous Junction Boys at Texas A&M along with Gene Stallings. A true football renaissance man. This one is for you Jack!

    Here are statements from the Titans organization and from Titans head coach Mike Munchak on the death of former Houston Oilers coach Jack Pardee. The 76 year-old Pardee, who coached Munchak — as well as Titans defensive coordinator Jerry Gray and offensive line coach Bruce Matthews – died today after a battle with cancer.

    The first statement is from the organization:

    “We are extremely saddened to learn of Jack Pardee’s passing. As a player and a coach, he left a lasting legacy on the football world. With the Oilers, Coach Pardee led the team to four consecutive playoff appearances and was instrumental in popularizing the ‘Run-and-Shoot’ offense. He was a devoted family man, and to those he leaves behind we offer our deepest condolences. He will be missed.”

    And here is Munchak’s statement:

    “We lost a great coach and, more importantly, a great man today. I had the privilege of playing for Jack Pardee with the Houston Oilers and also being a part of his coaching staff. I truly admired his passion for football and was especially inspired by his love of the history of the game. He often shared stories of his NFL playing days to motivate his players, which has greatly influenced the way that I now coach my players. Coach Pardee will surely be missed.”
