Statement from Titans:
“We are extremely saddened to learn of Jack Pardee’s passing. As a player and a coach, he left a lasting legacy on the football world. With the Oilers, Coach Pardee led the team to four consecutive playoff appearances and was instrumental in popularizing the ‘Run-and-Shoot’ offense. He was a devoted family man, and to those he leaves behind we offer our deepest condolences. He will be missed.”
Statement from Titans head coach Mike Munchak:
“We lost a great coach and, more importantly, a great man today. I had the privilege of playing for Jack Pardee with the Houston Oilers and also being a part of his coaching staff. I truly admired his passion for football and was especially inspired by his love of the history of the game. He often shared stories of his NFL playing days to motivate his players, which has greatly influenced the way that I now coach my players. Coach Pardee will surely be missed.”
