Ex Jets coach Joe Gardi died last week at the age of 71. We hope that his family can find peace and comfort during this difficult time.
Joe Gardi, a longtime assistant coach for the Jets who went on to coach Hofstra to a host of winning seasons while taking the university out of the small-time college football ranks, died Wednesday in Manhasset, N.Y. Gardi, who lived in Sayville, N.Y., was 71.
His son, David, said he died at North Shore University Hospital of complications from a stroke.
May you rest in peace coach.
