Former Patriots coach Chuck Fairbanks dies of brain cancer

Chuck Fairbanks, who led the University of Oklahoma to three Big Eight championships but was better known for his six seasons coaching the New England Patriots, died Tuesday of brain cancer.

He was 79.

Fairbanks coached the once-hapless Patriots to two playoff berths and compiled a 46-40 record in New England, including two 11-victory seasons.

He coached the Patriots from 1973-78. The team was 3-11 prior to his arrival and went 11-3, 9-5 and 11-5 over his final three seasons.
