Former Dallas Cowboys quarterback Don

Meredith has died in Santa Fe after suffering a brain hemorrhage

and lapsing into a coma on Sunday. He was 72.

Meredith’s wife, Susan, confirmed the former football star’s

death. She says a private graveside ceremony is being planned and

that family members are traveling to Santa Fe.

Meredith played for the Cowboys from 1960-1968, becoming the

starting quarterback in 1965. While he never led the Cowboys to the

Super Bowl, Meredith was one of the franchise’s first stars.

Over his nine-year career, Meredith threw for 17,199 yards and

111 touchdowns. He retired unexpectedly before the 1969 season.
