    I believe New England also offered him a head coaching gig later, which he accepted, but then changed his mind shortly thereafter.

    Hmmm...the Johnny "Blood" McNally era was too long ago...not late 60's. I'll take a shot in the dark and say Walt Keisling.

    (now I'm going to check on Google as soon as I submit this)...

    Drat! Missed it!!! Of course, I was born in 1975, so what do I know. Interesting that Kiesling was the coach on 3 separate occassions, though (39-40, 41-44, and 54-56). Bert Bell's Steelers went 0-2 in 1941, then they switched to Aldo Donelli who went 0-5 in 1941, before handing the reigns back to Kiesling again late in the 1941 season...3 coaches in 1 year! I don't think even George Steinbrenner ever did that!
