In the 1980s, Reeves helped the Denver Broncos become the AFC’s best team. He took the Broncos to three Super Bowls, but none of them were won, but he and quarterback John Elway built a reputation of greatness that made the team a national appeal.
He is second among Broncos coaches in terms of victories (110), following only his former assistant Mike Shanahan. They’re both Hall of Famers.
Later in his career, Reeves coached the Giants and Falcons. In Super Bowl 33, he faced the Broncos with Atlanta but fell short as Denver won back-to-back championships. As a player and coach, Reeves appeared in nine Super Bowls.
