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