Dennis Green      Pennsylvania Wikipedia 

Dennis Green attended John Harris High School in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania.

At Iowa, he started as halfback in each of his three seasons with the Iowa Hawkeyes. During his sophomore season, he was injured early in the season, and replaced by quarterback Ed Podolak, who went on to have a successful career as a running back in the NFL.

During his career, he rushed 139 times for 699 yards and nine touchdowns. His best game came in a 1968 loss to TCU when he rushed 18 times for 175 yards and scored two touchdowns.

He graduated cum laude from the University of Iowa with a BA in finance. He was not drafted to the NFL after college, so he joined the BC Lions of the CFL for the 1971 season.

He returned to Iowa as a graduate assistant in 1972 for his first coaching job, and later returned to Iowa as Running Backs coach from 1974–1976. He went on to have a very successful career in both college and the NFL.

He became the head coach at Northwestern from 1981-85, and was the Big Ten's first black head football coach. He was named Big Ten Conference Coach of the Year in 1982. After winning a Super Bowl with the San Francisco 49ers in 1988, he coached at Stanford from 1989-91. He became the second African-American head coach in the NFL in January 1992 when he accepted the head coach job of the Minnesota Vikings. He led the Vikings to eight playoff appearances, reaching the NFC championship game in 1998 and 2000, but was unable to get to the Super Bowl. He ranks second in Vikings game coached, wins, and winning percentage. He only had one losing season with the Vikings (2001). He was named to the Minnesota Vikings Ring of Honor. He later coached for the Arizona Cardinals from 2004-2006.

Born 2/17/1949 and died on 7/21/2016 at the age of 67.
