Ron Meyer was the winningest coach, percentage-wise, in UNLV Football history and passed away Tuesday at 76-years-old.
His family told News 3 that his death was unexpected and caused by an aortic aneurysm.
The former Purdue quarterback leaves behind a wife and four children in addition to an eclectic football legacy.
He led the Rebels from 1973 to 1975, posting a record of 27 wins and 8 losses.
He then coached the SMU Mustangs, and with the help of running backs Eric Dickerson and Craig James, turned an average program into a Southwest Conference champion.
The team wound up being banned from competition for one year for cheating.
That ruling is known as the NCAA's "death penalty."
Meyer went from getting that in college football, to having a prison inmate on work release use a stadium snowplow driver to clear a spot for the game-winning field goal against the Miami Dolphins, when was head coach of the NFL's New England Patriots in 1982.
He spent two and a half seasons with the Patriots, coached the Indianapolis Colts from 1986 to 1991, became a pro football analyst for CNN and then returned to Southern Nevada in 1994 to coach the Canadian Football League's Las Vegas Posse.
