Samuel David Wyche (born January 5, 1945 in Atlanta, Georgia) is a former American football player and head coach, who is best known as the head coach of the Cincinnati Bengals of the NFL. Perhaps best known for introducing the use of the No-huddle offense as a standard offense (as opposed to use at the end of the half), Wyche's greatest achievement as a head coach was leading the Cincinnati Bengals to Super Bowl XXIII, which they lost to the San Francisco 49ers 20-16.

Notable moments

  • Known as an emotional coach, he bonded well with his players and occasionally collided with superiors. His ongoing feud with Houston Oilers head coach Jerry Glanville was best exemplified in late 1989, when the Bengals scored early and often in a 61-7 thrashing. He also helped stoke the flames of the Cleveland - Cincinnati intrastate rivalry with several other comments and play calling during his tenure.
  • On December 10, 1989, during a game versus the Seattle Seahawks, Bengals fans in protest of what they perceived to be a bad call by the officials, began to throw beer bottles and other debris onto the field at the referees and the Seahawks, who were at their own 4-yard line and an easy target from the bleachers. Seattle refused to continue until they stopped, and play was halted by the officials. In order to stop the onslaught, Wyche was given a house microphone to try to calm the crowd, asking fans to please point out anyone throwing anything to stadium security and chided the fans who were doing the throwing: "You don't live in Cleveland, you live in Cincinnati!"
  • On December 24, 1991, just three years after the Bengals' Super Bowl appearance, Wyche was fired by owner Mike Brown, who had taken over the team upon the death of his father, club founder Paul Brown, four months earlier. Controversy erupted when the Bengals claimed Wyche had resigned, relieving the team of any future payments, but Wyche stated he was fired.
  • Wyche spent the next four years as head coach of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Following his dismissal at the conclusion of the 1995 season, he became a broadcaster, first for NBC, then for CBS and Westwood One.
  • Near the end of his tenure with the Bucs, Wyche participated in a lighthearted pregame promotional piece for television. At the time, Jimmy Johnson, then the recently dismissed coach of the Dallas Cowboys, was rumored to be heading to Tampa to displace Wyche. During the promo, Wyche was about to address his team when an assistant ducked his head into the room and beckoned Wyche out of the room, and to "bring your playbook." Wyche disappeared, and in walked Johnson, who addressed "his" new team.
  • Sam Wyche is now the offensive coordinator for the Pickens Blue Flame. He helped the Blue Flame get to the second round of the playoffs and hope to get farther into the playoff in the 2007 football season.
