Former NFL coach Dennis Green has died at 67.
Green coached the Minnesota Vikings and Arizona Cardinals and had a 113-94 overall record in 13 seasons. He finished his NFL coaching career in 2006.
Green died of a heart attack, ESPN’s Adam Scheffer reported.

Green coached the Vikings to a 15-1 record in 1998 and lost in the NFC Championship Game to Atlanta Falcons on a missed field goal.
Green may perhaps be best remembered for his postgame rant after his Cardinals blew a 20-point halftime lead and lost to the Chicago Bears in 2006. He pounded the podium and famously said “They are who we thought they were!” of the Bears.
