Dick Vermeil

Position - Head Coach
Active - 2001 - 2005

Dick Vermeil was one of the best coaches the Kansas City Chiefs have ever had.  Coach Vermeil had a unique way of coaching in that he became more or less a father figure to the players.  He would often have players over to his house for dinner, and he said that any player could call him at home any time day or night to discuss personal issues or anything that might be troubling them.  Coach Vermeil was coaxed out of retirement by Carl Peterson, who had admired Dick Vermeil tremendously for his efforts with The Philadelphia Eagles and later with the Superbowl Champion St. Louis Rams.  Here is some info from Wikipedia:

Vermeil graduated in 1959 with an M.A. from San Jose State University, where he was the backup quarterback. After serving as assistant coach for San Jose抯 Del Mar High Schoolfootball team for one season and for Hillsdale High School in nearby San Mateo, he then went to Foothill College with coach Bill Walker. During the 1964-1965 school year he was weightlifting coach at College of San Mateo with his brother as an assistant. The following year he was at Diablo Valley College as a football coach. In 1965-1966, he coached Stanford University's freshman football team. Vermeil was hired as the NFL's first ever Special Teamscoach by George Allen's Los Angeles Rams in 1969. Except for 1970, when he was an assistant coach with UCLA, he would remain with the Rams until 1974 when he was named as head coach by UCLA. Vermeil compiled a 15𤃁 record in two seasons (19741975) as head coach at UCLA, including a 9𣇻 record in 1975 when Vermeil led the Bruins to their first conference championship in 10 years, and a win in the Rose Bowl over an undefeated and number 1 ranked Ohio State team.

Dick Vermeil was a very emotional human being and he gave effortlessly to Kansas City Chiefs charity organizations and other Kansas City charity events.  Vermeil would often become very emotional during his press conferences and would often break into tears.  Dick Vermeil retired from coaching in the NFL in 2006 and has never returned.
