    Former football coach and player Gene Stallings suffered a stroke Monday morning at Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport.

    Stallings, who was the head coach at Texas A&M University from 1965 to 1971, was going to his 'Legendary Coaches Event' with former Auburn coach Pat Dye.

    According to Dye's Twitter, Stallings will be rescheduling this event "as soon as doctors release him."

    Stallings was an assistant under legendary Cowboys head coach Tom Landry during Super Bowl VII; he also served as the head coach of the St. Louis/Phoenix Cardinals (1986-1989), and the University of Alabama (1990-1996).

    Clemson head coach Dabo Swinney is considered a part of Stallings' coaching tree.

    Stallings' condition is unclear, though he is said to be in good spirits.

    This story will be updated as more details are released.
