Former U. football coach Jim Fassel passes away

Jim Fassel, who coached the University of Utah from 1985-89, has passed away at age 71. Fassel was reportedly hospitalized with chest pain and died on June 7 in Las Vegas.

After guiding the Utes to a 25-33 record, Fassel went on to a stellar career in the NFL. The league’s 1997 coach of the year posted a 58-53 mark with the New York Giants, leading them to an appearance in Super Bowl XXXV. He later led the Las Vegas Locomotives to a pair of United Football League championships.

Fassel, who was born on Aug. 31, 1949, played quarterback in college and later served as an assistant coach at both Utah (1976) and Weber State (1977-78).
