NEW YORK (AP) — Allie Sherman, the player-friendly coach who led the New York Giants to NFL championship games in his first three seasons with a star-studded but aging roster, has died. He was 91.
Sherman's family said Monday that he died Saturday at his Manhattan home.
"Allie was a great coach and an even better man," John Mara, Giants' president and chief executive officer, said. "He was a special friend, and I will miss him dearly."
