Former Denver Broncos head coach Lou Saban passed away early this morning. According to the article, Saban had ‘recently suffered a fall’ which caused him to be hospitalized. Lou Saban was known as a ‘jack of all trades/, holding many jobs throughout his career.
There was a reason Saban was dubbed “Much Traveled Lou.” In the first 33 years of a career that spanned five decades, Saban held 18 jobs, an average of 1.83 years per stop. Among those jobs was president of the New York Yankees from 1981-82 for his longtime friend, team owner George Steinbrenner.
Lou Saban was highly respected by his players.
“He was like a father to me,” former Bills defensive backsaid. “He steered me in the right direction. He gave me advice. Some of it, I didn’t like, but isn’t that what a father does?”
Saban left his footprint on the world of football on and off the field, may he rest in peace.
