Former Patriots, Colts coach Ron Meyer dies at 76

Former UNLV football coach Ron Meyer dies at 76

The game will be Meyers first bowl as a head coach and SMUs first bowl in 12 years.

In 1981, his last season at the school, Meyer led SMU to a 10-1 record and the Southwest Conference title.

Indianapolis Colts head coach Ron Meyer on the sidelines during a 1989 game against the Miami Dolphins at Joe Robbie Stadium. The Patriots, being a veteran-heavy team, responded positively to Berry's laconic personality and advanced to the franchise's first Super Bowl a year later. He was initially seen as a rising star in the college ranks despite the fact that the NCAA eventually issued the "death penalty" to the SMU program for infractions committed during Meyer's six-year tenure there. UNLV went to the NCAA Division II semifinals that season where it lost to DE in the Grantland Rice Bowl in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, finishing the year 12-1.

Former NFL and college football head coach Ron Meyer died at the age of 76, Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay confirmed Tuesday night.

Meyer also found himself in constant conflict with some members of his coaching staff, notably defensive coordinator Rod Rust. He was a great man. Coach and his family are in my thoughts and prayers.

"Devastated to hear the passing of my coach and great friend Ron Meyer". That bubbled over into an open battle over authority after the Patriots lost a 44-24 decision to the Miami Dolphins on October 21, 1984, when Meyer chose to fire Rust.

He went on to coach the Colts from 1986 to 1991, earning AFC Coach of the Year again in 1987. Meyer was hired when the Colts were 0-13 and after three seasons, they were 9-6 during another strike-shortened year.
