Dallas, TX (Sports Network) - Former Dallas Cowboys special teams coach Joe
Avezzano died of a heart attack in Italy on Thursday.
"Joe Avezzano was a very special part of our Dallas Cowboys family and our
organization's history," said Cowboys owner Jerry Jones. "He was also a
wonderful father, husband and friend. No one enjoyed life more than Joe, and
no one that I know had a greater appreciation for the people that he loved and
the lives that he touched. We grieve with Diann and Tony and the thousands of
fans who loved Coach Joe. He was an original. There was no one else like him."
