COLUMBIA, S.C. (Jan. 1, 2022) – The South Carolina Athletic Hall of Fame family mourns the loss of USC and NFL legend Dan Reeves. Reeves was inducted into the SCAHOF in 2006.

During his 38 years in the NFL he participated in nine Super Bowls, the third most for an individual and topped only by New England coach Bill Belichick and quarterback Tom Brady.

As head coach, he led the Denver Broncos to three Super Bowl appearances and the Atlanta Falcons to one. He is one of only nine coaches in NFL history to win at least 200 games, including post-season (201-174-2).
