All about Hall of Fame NFL Executive Bobby Beathard’s Death
Bobby Beathard, who spent more than three decades as an NFL executive, passed away on January 30, 2023, at the age of 86. Bobby Beathard’s cause of death was revealed by his son.
His son, Casey, said that Bobby Beathard’s death was from complications from Alzheimer’s disease at his home in Franklin, Tennessee.
In the 1970s, Beathard was director of player personnel for two of the NFL championships by Miami and served as general manager for two more by Washington in the ’80s.
The player scouted for Kansas City when the Chiefs won the American Football League title and made Super Bowl I following the 1966 season. In the mid-1990s, he was GM with San Diego when the Chargers got there.
Part of seven teams that made the Super Bowl during his career, Bobby was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2018. Washington added Bobby to the organization’s Ring of Honor in 2016.
Beathard scouted for the Atlanta Falcons but is widely known for his roles with Don Shula’s Dolphins earned the Super Bowl back-to-back and then hiring coach Joe Gibbs and drafting Art Monk, Darrell Green, and others during his time in Washington.
“I came to the Redskins from the Miami Dolphins, and the years at the Miami Dolphins including the ’72 season of undefeated teams and being with Shula, I learned a lot more than I ever had up until that time about football,” Bobby said in 2016 at Washington’s training camp in Richmond, Virginia.
Beathard added: “So I felt coming into a situation like this that I felt prepared because I never wanted to go into a situation that I felt was too big for me or where I wasn’t prepared.”
He resigned from that job in 1989, before Washington earned a third Super Bowl with a core he constructed, and went into Television before being hired as GM of the Chargers in 1990.
Beathard spent a decade with them. In 1988, Sports Illustrated called Beathard “The Smartest Man in the NFL” — a title he did not like.
“That was kind of embarrassing. Whoever put that in there, I told them when it first came out, ‘Well, you better go back and ask my high school and college teachers if that’s true, and I don’t think they’d agree with that.'”
