Jack Pardee, coach and player, dies

HOUSTON (AP) — Jack Pardee, one of Bear Bryant’s “Junction Boys” at Texas A&M who went on to become an All-Pro linebacker and an NFL coach, died Monday.

He was 76.

In November, Pardee’s family announced that he had gall bladder cancer that had spread to other organs and that he had six to nine months to live. The family has established a memorial scholarship fund in Pardee’s name at the University of Houston, where Pardee coached from 1987-89.

“Today, we mourn the passing of a great man who dedicated his life to the game of football and was a true gentleman in every sense of the word,” Houston athletic director Mack Rhoades said.

“It was not a coincidence that success followed coach and his teams wherever he worked, and the University of Houston program was blessed to have him lead our football program during some of our most exciting times.”

Pardee was born in Iowa and moved to west-central Texas as a teenager.
