Hall of Famer Kevin Greene, ex-Jets coach, dead at 58
Legendary pass rusher Kevin Greene died Monday at his Alabama home, the Pro Football Hall of Fame announced. He was 58 years old. No cause of death has been disclosed.
"The entire Pro Football Hall of Fame family mourns Kevin Greene," said David Baker, President and CEO of the Hall of Fame, in a statement. “I considered him to be a personal friend and hall of famer in every way. He had the most incredible can-do attitude I have ever met. He was a great player, but on top of that, he was a great man. Our thoughts and prayers go with Kevin's wife Tara and her entire family. We will keep his legacy alive forever to serve as inspiration for future generations. The Hall of Fame flag is hoisted on half of the staff in Kevin's memory. "
Greene's Hall of Fame career began in 1985 and ended in 1999. He spent eight years with the Los Angeles Rams before moving to Pittsburgh, Carolina and San Francisco. While his uniform changed over the years, defeating opposing quarterbacks was never possible. Greene posted double-digit sacks in 10 of his 15 seasons and finished his career with at least 10.5 sacks in four consecutive seasons.
Greene, selected from Auburn in the fifth round, was eliminated in third place on the all-time sack list at 160. The five-time pro bowler was inducted into the Hall of Fame's all-1990 team.
Greene, who was also involved in professional wrestling, returned to the NFL almost a decade after retiring as a coach. He began as an intern with the Steelers before hiring Green Bay as an external linebacker trainer in 2009. There he won a Super Bowl and stayed with the Packers until 2013. After another hiatus, he took the same job with the Jets in 2017.
Greene worked for Todd Bowles and stayed in New York for the 2018 season.
"Our thoughts go with the family of NFL legend Kevin Greene," the Jets said in a separate statement. “Kevin, a former jet coach, has made a positive impact on everyone he has met. He will be missed. "
