Very sad news on Friday for the  Dallas Cowboys franchise as former QB and assistant head coach Wade Wilson has reportedly passed away at his home in Texas. 


Coach Wilson was 60 years old.

Wilson was originally drafted back in 1981 by the Minnesota Vikings but played for the Dallas Cowboys from 1995-1997, where he would eventually win Super Bowl XXX against the Pittsburgh Steelers as Hall-of-Fame QB Troy Aikman's backup.


After retiring as a player, Wilson became the Cowboys QB coach in 2000, and held that role until 2002 before leaving for the Bears. However, Wilson would return, and coach in the same role from 2007-2017, working with players such as Tony Romo and Dak Prescott.

In 125 career games as a QB, Wilson threw for over 17,200 yards and 99 TDs, and was even the NFL completion leader in 1988, which ultimately ended in a selection to the Pro Bowl.


May you rest in peace Coach Wilson. Our thoughts go out to the Wilson family during this difficult time.
