TitleChiefs' Founder, AFL Pioneer Dies
AbstractLamar Hunt, founder of the Kansas City Chiefs, died December 13, 2006. "Hunt's decision to relocate the Dallas Texans of the fledgling and struggling American Football League and rename them the Kansas City Chiefs in 1963 helped establish the region as a major-league community and ensured big-time sports would continue here for generations to come." Hunt was born in El Dorado, Arkansas, in 1932. He not only founded the American Football League in 1959, but formed World Championship Tennis in 1967, and served as a charter owner-operator of Major League Soccer in 1996.
