Former Chiefs coach dies

April 28, 2009


— Former Kansas City Chiefs coach Frank Gansz, who spent much of his NFL and collegiate career working with special teams, died Monday at a Dallas hospital. He was 70.

Gansz developed complications after undergoing knee-replacement surgery last week and died Monday afternoon. Gansz had been special teams coach for the Mustangs last year.

“In his over 30 years in football, Frank was a tremendous coach, a beloved teacher and an outstanding person,” Chiefs chairman Clark Hunt said in a statement. “He will be missed.”
