Playing career

Over eight seasons with the Dallas Cowboys, Reeves collected 1,990 rushing yards and 1,693 receiving yards. His best year came in 1966, when he rushed for seven touchdowns, good for second in the league. Reeves threw a touchdown pass in the Cowboys' losing effort in the notorious "Ice Bowl;" the 1967 Championship Game against the Green Bay Packers. The Cowboys made the playoffs every year of Reeves's playing days, reaching the Super Bowl twice and culminating in a 24-3 victory over the Miami Dolphins in 1971.

Coaching career

Worn down by multiple injuries, Reeves began serving on the sidelines as a player/coach in 1970 and after his full retirement in 1972 he took a job on the team as the running backs coach. After leaving the sport for a business position in 1973, he returned to the Cowboys again in 1974 as running backs coach, and was promoted to offensive coordinator in 1977. The Cowboys made 3 more Super Bowls during Reeves' tenure as an assistant coach, earning him another ring in 1977 with a win over the Denver Broncos.

In 1981, the 37 year old Reeves was made head coach and Vice President of the Denver Broncos, making him at the time the youngest head coach in the league. Over the next 12 years, Reeves led the Broncos to a 110-73-1 regular season record (7-6 playoff), six playoff appearances, and three appearances in the Super Bowl. Unfortunately, Reeves was never able to win the big game with the Broncos. Friction between him and John Elway led to his departure from Denver, but he would still find opportunities to coach. Interestingly, his problems with Elway would come back to haunt him later in his career, in Super Bowl XXXIII. The 1981 NFL season was the 62th regular season of the National Football League. ...

In 1993, Reeves took over as head coach of the floundering New York Giants. In his first season at the helm, the Giants went 11-5 and made the playoffs for the first time in three years, giving the fans and team hope that Reeves was the answer to the team's troubles. For his efforts, Reeves was named Coach of the Year by the Associated Press. However, Reeves could not duplicate his success, and was fired at the end of the 1996 season, leaving behind a 31-33 record with the Giants. The 1993 NFL season was the 74th regular season of the National Football League. ... This article is about the current National Football League team. ...


In 1996, Reeves took on his biggest challenge yet by accepting the head coaching job of the Atlanta Falcons. The year before the Falcons had gone 3-13, and they had done little to improve their personnel. Yet by 1998, Reeves led the team to a 14-2 record and his record 9th Super Bowl appearance on the sidelines. That year was particularly tumultuous for Reeves, who underwent surgery to remove a cancerous tumor from his nasal cavity midway through the season. Although the team lost Super Bowl XXXIII by a 34-19 margin against Reeves's old team the Denver Broncos, Reeves was widely hailed for the team's turnaround, and was again awarded the Coach of the Year honor. Again, however, Reeves failed to maintain the level of excellence he had attained early in his post, and he was fired towards the end of the 2003 season.

Reeves' career coaching record is 201-174-2, including an 11-9 record in the playoffs. His 201 wins are currently the most ever by a coach that did not win a Super Bowl.


On December 12, 2005, Reeves was hired as a talent consultant for the NFL's Houston Texans. The Texans' new head coach (as of January 2006) is former Denver Broncos offensive coordinator and quarterback Gary Kubiak, who was drafted in the eighth round of the 1983 Draft by then-Broncos coach Reeves. is the 346th day of the year (347th in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ...
