Tom Landry, the Dallas Cowboys coach who led America's Team to five Super Bowls and was famous for pacing the sidelines for three decades wearing a stone face, 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 called in Landry's family earlier in the day. At 7:45 p.m. CST, the hospital issued a release in behalf of Landry's family:
"Tom Landry, wow. I didnt know him personally but i did want to meet him. unfortunatly i was to young. I am very sorry for the loss of the Landry family and hope that they still have the love of football in your hearts like he did.
