Herb Brooks killed

Herb Brooks, the coach of the 1980 USA Olympic hockey team, died yesterday when he lost control of his van on the interstate north of the Twin Cities. The van rolled and threw Brooks, who wasn't wearing a seat belt, about 35 meters away. He was 66. He was on his way to the airport for a flight to Chicago. Another great loss for the hockey world. Two of the greatest coaches have already died this year, Roger Neilson and now Herb Brooks. To read more about him, click here.
