Former Oilers Coach Ed Biles passed away last night. I always loved running into Coach at games and golf courses. Always a great smile and even better stories. Rest in Peace Coach. pic.twitter.com/4QvN7NsQvl— Bob Slovak (@BobSlovak13) April 5, 2020
Biles enjoyed a long football coaching career that included nine years with the Oilers, first as a defensive back coach, and then defensive coordinator under Bum Phillips.
He was the Oilers head coach from 1981 through part of the '83 season.
Elvin Bethea and Curly Culp, both in the NFL Hall of Fame, were part of Biles' Oilers defense.
