Tears Flow in This Video of Dick Vermeil Learning About His Hall of Fame Induction


Love and tears formed the foundation of Dick Vermeil’s hard-driving coaching methods.

It should come as no surprise, then, that both were aplenty when Vermeil was recently notified by Kurt Warner — the quarterback who led their team, the St. Louis Rams, to a victory in Super Bowl XXXIV — that he’d be joining him in the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

The above video captures the moment when Warner and a camera crew arrived in the morning at Vermeil’s home in East Fallowfield Township, described as “The Hills of Pennsylvania.”

Vermeil, 85, coached the Philadelphia Eagles from 1976-82, leading them to a berth in Super Bowl XV.

Vermeil’s official enshrinement as a member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame’s Class of 2022 will be held in August.
