Sam began his coaching career with Bill Walsh and the San Francisco 49ers in 1979. He coached quarterback Joe Montana from his rookie year to the 49ers' first Super Bowl victory in Super Bowl XVI. Sam was the head coach at Indiana University before taking the same post with the Cincinnati Bengals in 1984. His team played in Super Bowl XXIII against his old team, the 49ers.
