Running back Bert Coan was drafted by the Oakland Raiders in 1962. After playing in four games with the Chargers, Coan was shipped off to the Kansas City Chiefs prior to the start of the 1963 season. Coan spent six years with the Chiefs where he had a strong, if unheralded career. He led the AFL with 5.4 yards-per-carry in 1966, and finished Top 10 in the league each season in most rushing categories.
Always known for his great speed, Bert Coan is being honored this week with induction into the Texas High School Football Hall of Fame. You can read more about Coan, and his high school, collegiate and professional sporting achievements in the article HERE.
