Dennis Green coached the Minnesota Vikings and Arizona Cardinals as well as at Stanford University

Former NFL coach Dennis Green has died at age 67, reported Friday.

Green lived in Carmel Mountain Ranch outside of San Diego, California and recently appeared at a public meeting discussing a controversial proposed development.

Born in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, Green worked under legendary 49ers coach Bill Walsh before taking a head coaching job at Stanford, according to NBC Sports.

Green earned a head coaching job in the pros at a time when there were few African-American candidates interviewed for those spots, the website reported.

He went on to lead the Minnesota Vikings beginning in 1992 and the Arizona Cardinals from 2004 to 2006.
