BOULDER, Colo. (AP) -Eddie Crowder, who spent nearly half of a century at the University of Colorado as a football coach, athletic director and mentor to generations of other coaches, died Tuesday night, the school said. He was 77.
Crowder, who played quarterback at the University of Oklahoma, compiled a record of 67-49-2 in 11 seasons as Colorado's coach from 1963 to 1973. He then served 11 years as athletic director.
He remained an active supporter of Buffaloes sports until his death.
Athletic director Mike Bohn said CU has lost ``a tremendous leader, coach, mentor and friend.''
