    He was a journey 'coach.'
    He was on the coaching staff of the Bengals and Steelers teams that lost Super Bowls XVI, XXIII, and XXX.
    In his first year as defensive coordinator with the Bengals, the Bengals dropped from first in defense in 1983 to 13th in 1984. They would drop to 22nd in 1985.
    He is said to always recite 'The Night Before Christmas' to his players every year.
    He was considered as one of the most durable defensive backs and players in Lions franchise history.
    In 1981, the Bengals had an outstanding defense that had not given up more than 30 points in any of their regular season or playoff games
    He was credited with creating the 'Fire Zone' or 'zone blitz' defense, which employed unpredictable pass rushes and pass coverage from various players.
    In contrast to former Steelers coach Bill Cowher, he is not cocky and strict.
    He played Michael Caine's stunt double for the 1970 film 'Too Late the Hero.'
    Patience prevailed when he helped Pittsburgh's defense in winning Super Bowl XL, thus earning his first ring.
