DALLAS (AP) - Robert Newhouse, who played running back for the Dallas Cowboys for 11 years and went to three Super Bowls, has died. He was 64.
Newhouse's son, Rodd Newhouse, says his father died Tuesday at Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, after a battle with heart disease.
Newhouse had suffered a stroke in 2010.
The burly running back was drafted by the Cowboys in 1972 out of the University of Houston, where he ran for 1,757 yards as a senior, a school record that still stands.
Newhouse ran for 4,784 yards in his career with Dallas. He retired in 1983 after playing in three Super Bowls with some of the Cowboys greatest teams, including the 1976 NFL champions.
In the 1977 Super Bowl victory against Denver, Newhouse threw a touchdown pass.
