Class of 2021
Marv Levy made excellence a habit.
Levy was named the head coach for the Montreal Alouettes in 1973, following coaching stints in the NFL and NCAA. The Alouettes appeared in the playoffs in all five seasons he led the team, capturing Canadian football’s most cherished prize, the Grey Cup in 1974 and 1977.
In 1974, he was honoured with the Annis Stukus Trophy as CFL’s coach of the year. The Alouettes compiled a record of 43-31-4 (.577) during his tenure.
With this announcement, Levy is about to become only the third person to be enshrined in both the Canadian Football Hall of Fame and Museum, in Hamilton, Ontario, and the Pro Football Hall of Fame, in Canton, Ohio. The latter has recognized Levy for leading the NFL’s Buffalo Bills to four consecutive Super Bowl Appearances following his success in Montreal and his tenure with the Kansas City Chiefs. Levy joins Bud Grant and Warren Moon to be enshrined in both Halls of Fame.
