Former Browns Captain, Lou Saban, Dies at Age 87


Lou Saban died today at 87 years old. Saban played for Indiana University and then for the Browns in the AAFC. He later coached professional and college football. His most notable tenures as head coach were with the 1960s Buffalo Bills and then again in Buffalo in the 1970s with "the Juice", OJ Simpson.
After playing quarterback and fullback in college, Saban moved to the linebacker position with the Browns (it was not unusual in those days for a player to master more than one position). He captained the Browns to dominance every season of the AAFC's four-year existence. He was twice voted to the league's All-Star team.
Lou did not have a winning overall coaching record in either the pros or the college ranks, however, he was nearly .500 at each level over his career, and he won AFL titles and Coach of the Year honours with the Bills. His coaching style was attractive to his players who were loyal and complimentary of him. His linebacker skills were formidable on the field.
Our sympathies go to Lou Saban's family and friends. The Browns franchise has lost a member of its family.
