FRISCO, Texas (AP) - Hubbard Alexander, who was Hall of Fame receiver Michael Irvin’s position coach with the Miami Hurricanes and Dallas Cowboys, has died. He was 77.

The Cowboys said in a news release that Alexander died Sunday night.

Alexander came to the Cowboys with Jimmy Johnson as receivers coach when new Dallas owner Jerry Jones lured Johnson away from the Hurricanes to be head coach in 1989.

After 10 seasons with the Hurricanes, Alexander spent nine seasons with the Cowboys before stints with Minnesota and New Orleans. He also coached at Vanderbilt before joining the staff at Miami.

Alexander was on the staff for two national titles with Miami and three Super Bowls with the Cowboys.
