Quote:
He played six-man football at Christoval High School in west-central Texas, near San Angelo, before moving on to Texas A&M. Bryant became the Aggies' coach in 1954 and moved their preseason camp to desolate Junction, about 100 miles northwest of San Antonio.

The state endured a severe drought and an historic heat wave that year, but Bryant worked his team through the brutal conditions and refused to allow water breaks in an effort to toughen players. Pardee was one of 35 players who made it through to the end of the 10-day camp without quitting.

Pardee played three seasons at Texas A&M and was the 14th overall pick in the 1957 NFL draft by Los Angeles. He played for the Rams from 1957-64, sat out a year to deal with his melanoma, and played seven more seasons. He finished his playing career with the Washington Redskins in 1973.

He was selected as an All-Pro in 1963 and 1971.

He coached in the World Football League for one season before moving on to NFL coaching. He was the Chicago Bears' head coach from 1975-77. He coached the Redskins from 1978-80 and was fired after Washington went 6-10.

He served as San Diego's defensive coordinator for one season, then returned to Texas to coach the USFL's Houston Gamblers.

When the USFL disbanded in 1987, Pardee became the coach at the University of Houston and brought along the fast-paced "Run-and-Shoot" offense that worked well with the Gamblers.

The NCAA levied severe sanctions on the program in 1988, the result of violations committed under previous coach Bill Yeoman. Houston was banned from playing in a bowl game for two years and banned from playing on television in the 1989 season.

But the Cougars led the nation in total offense (624.9 yards per game) and passing offense (511 yards per game) in 1989, and quarterback Andre Ware became the first black quarterback to win the Heisman Trophy. Houston finished 9-2 and ranked No. 14 in the nation.
Quote:
Pardee became the coach of the NFL's Houston Oilers in 1990, and led the team to the playoffs in each of his first four seasons. Oilers owner Bud Adams traded star quarterback Warren Moon to Minnesota before the 1994 season, and Pardee resigned after a 1-9 start that year.

He ended his NFL coaching career with a record of 87-77.
The man really was a Texas football legend. I don't think he gets quite the credit he deserves for such an outstanding contribution to football.

One of the most amazing games ever was when everyone was wondering if the Coogs were for real and we played the Horns. We were down 40-20 and the beginning of the 4th quarter and... well... I'd given up all hope.

We won.

60-40.

That. So. Rocked.

I was at the game in Austin when UH destroyed them 66-15. My UT buddy and I were walking out of the stadium when an old lady came up to me, told me I should be ashamed of myself for being a Cougar fan, them whacked me with her umbrella. Good old classy Texas fans. I laughed so hard I had tears in my eyes as we kept walking.

The next year in the Dome was fun too. 47-9, I believe. I was keeping my eye on every old woman I saw with an umbrella though.

(Sorry, Pencil remened me of UH-UT and I got off thrack, carry on)

I texted my brother about Jack Pardee's death, and he reminded me of the time my father gave Jack a ride home from the gas station down the road from us since we lived around the corner. I had forgotten all about that.

The first time I saw Jack Pardee on the field was when Walter Payton and his Bears came to the Dome in the mid-70's and were whipped by our Oilers and Billy white shoes Johnson. I didn't know till later that this was a Jack Pardee coached team...in any case, he's been in my "nfl fan life" for as long as I can remember. Class Man, great Character person. May he rest in peace.
