Walt Michaels - 1955 Bowman

Walter Edward Michaels (October 16, 1929 - July 10, 2019) played 12 years at linebacker in the NFL with the Green Bay Packers (1951), the Cleveland Browns (1952-1961) and the New York Jets (1963). The Browns selected Michaels in the seventh round of the 1951 NFL Draft out of William and Lee University. Walt was a five-time Pro Bowler and helped lead the Browns to five straight (1955-1959) NFL championship games, winning the 1954 and 1955 NFL titles. In 12 seasons, Walt had 11 interceptions, eight fumbles recoveries and 11 kick returns for 187 all-purpose yards and 12 points on two touchdowns. Walt is best known for his time as the head coach of the New York Jets form 1977 to 1982. He took a struggling Jets team to the AFC Championship Game in six seasons only to lose the AFC title game to the Miami Dolphins in the “Mud Bowl”, named for the rains soaked field. After his six seasons in New York, compiling a 39-47-1 record in 87 games at head coach, Michaels retired. He later coached the New Jersey Generals of the United States Football League compiling a 25-11-0 record.
