Statement From Bengals President Mike Brown on Forrest Gregg

“It’s a sad day here. My memories of Forrest are very special. He not only was the coach of the team, but we were also good friends.

“As a coach, he was very successful here. We had good people, good players and he got the best out of them. He was demanding. The players didn’t try to cut corners. They went out and did what they had to do, and what we were doing worked. We were somewhat ahead of the curve at the time.

“It saddens me greatly that he’s gone and I express sympathy to Barbara and his children.”
