Iman, NFL vet with Packers, Rams, dead at 71
PHILADELPHIA (AP) - A 15-year NFL veteran and center on two Green Bay Packers championship teams has died. Ken Iman was 71.
The Philadelphia Eagles announced Sunday that their former assistant coach and sales executive died Saturday at his home in Springfield, Pa. No cause was given.
Iman played with the Packers from 1960-1964 and in three straight NFL championship games, winning titles in 1961 and '62.
He also played for the Los Angeles Rams from 1965-1974, when he started 140 straight games. He was the team MVP in 1972.
He was offensive line coach with the Eagles from 1976 to 1986 under three head coaches: Dick Vermeil, Marion Campbell and Buddy Ryan.
After his playing career, Iman served as a sales account executive with the Eagles for a decade.
A native of St. Louis, the 1960 graduate of Southeast Missouri State is survived by his wife, Joyce, who is an accountant with the Eagles.
Funeral arrangements are pending.
