He was one of those guys.
It’s just a very sad day for New England football.

leading them to the league title that same season.
30 years as a head coach.
including 22 seasons with the Big Green.
Teevens became the winningest coach in program history.
with Dartmouth a three-time New England Coach of the Year.
