Dick Rehbein was an American football coach for twenty-three seasons in the National Football League, filling a variety of roles as an offensive position coach. Starting in 1979, Rehbein served as the Packers’ special teams coach before moving to the USFL’s Los Angeles Express and then the NFL’s Minnesota Vikings in 1984. In Minnesota, Rehbein served in multiple offensive coaching capacities and in 1992, joined the New York Giants’ coaching staff as a tight ends coach.
After also coaching the Giants’ wide receivers and offensive line, Rehbein left the Giants to be the quarterbacks coach of the New England Patriots in 2000. Though Rehbein’s time with the Patriots was short due to his death in 2001, he played a large role in the franchise by championing the draft selection of then-little-known Tom Brady. Chosen in the 6th round of the 2000 NFL Draft with the 199th pick, Brady would then go on to win multiple MVPs and Super Bowls.
