COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - Marvin Bass, a former head football coach at South Carolina who posted three wins against in-state rival Clemson in five seasons, has died. He was 91.

Greenlawn Funeral Home says Bass died Friday.

Nicknamed “Moose,” Bass was an All-American at William and Mary from 1939-42 and served two years in the Navy.

During his stint at South Carolina from 1961-65, Bass had a record of 17-29-4. His best season was his last when the team went 5-5 overall and 4-2 in the Atlantic Coast Conference.

He was an assistant for several college and NFL teams, including for Dan Reeves in Denver and Atlanta. Reeves played quarterback for Bass at South Carolina and will be among the pallbearers at the funeral Tuesday.
