Wyche was hired by the Bengals in 1984 and remained in Cincinnati through 1991. His 64 wins with the Bengals are the second most in franchise history, behind Marvin Lewis.

Known as an emotional coach, Wyche led the Bengals to their second Super Bowl appearance in Super Bowl XXIII, during which the San Francisco 49ers defeated the Bengals 20–16.

WLWT will update this story.

I remember the look on his face, the isolate camera shot of him as Montana drove down the field on his Bengals to win the Super Bowl.  Guy looked helpless and new what was coming.  He had his Bengals ready for that game and they damn near won it.

RIP Sam. Good coach indeed. When they first started rolling with that no huddle - they were tough to slow down.

He was a great coach, very prominent in his era.  Doesn't seem that he retired that long ago.
