Former Cowboys coach Tom Landry died a Giants fan

According to Bart Hubbuch of the New York Post,  former Dallas Cowboys head coaching great Tom Landry died a fan of the New York Giants.

In a book written by Landry’s widow,  she stated that her husband was so upset with how poorly Jerry Jones treated him after he was fired,  that he routed for the Giants for the remainder of his life.

In the book titled “The Last Cowboy: A Life of Tom Landry,” by Long Island author Mark Ribowsky, Alicia Landry,  it states that Jones also took away Landry’s suite at the old Cowboys Stadium and also banned his son Tom Jr. from purchasing season tickets.

Landry was the Giants defensive coordinator in 1954, so it was easy for him to cheer for them.  His widow supports Big Blue to this day because of her husbamd.

“The Giants are still like family,” Alicia Landry said in a December 2011 interview, according to the book. “I still have dinner with Ann Mara [Wellington Mara’s widow] when she comes in. …The Giants never stopped being our family.”
