Don Meredith was 'Dandy' on the field – and in the Monday Night Football booth
Don Meredith, who passed on Sunday, quarterbacked the Dallas Cowboys for eight NFL seasons before heading into ABC's 'Monday Night Football' broadcast booth. Don Meredith knew the game, but he added a comedic touch when working with Frank Gifford and Howard Cosell.
Don Meredith, former Southern Methodist and Dallas Cowboys quarterback, died Sunday in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
Meredith was a Texas original. He was born in Mount Vernon and grew up to play quarterback at SMU in Dallas.
Then, he played eight seasons for the Dallas Cowboys, leading them to the NFL Championship game in 1966 and 1967.
