The man who led the greatest defense in NFL history, Buddy Ryan, died Tuesday at the age of 82.

The defensive mastermind's coaching career began in 1961 as a defensive line coach for the Bills, where he spent five years. Ryan coached the Jets' defensive line when they won Super Bowl III.

Ryan then helped coach the famous "Purple People Eaters" Vikings defense, running their D-line from 1976-77 before beginning his eight-year stint with the Bears.
