Biography

Coach of the New York Giants in the early 60’s - his achievements included NFL eastern championships in 1961, 62 & 63, and a second place finish in 1965. In his years with the Giants, Allie guided New York to three 1st Place finishes, a 2nd, and a 3rd. For his winning efforts as a rookie coach in 1961, Sherman was named NFL Coach of the Year; he won the same distinction in 1962, making him the 1st coach in NFL history to be so honored

Allie Sherman’s career with the Giants spanned two periods - he was backfield coach under Steve Owen from 1949-53 and after moving to the Canadian League for 3 seasons, he returned to the Giants as a scout in 1957.

Sherman was drafted by the Philadelphia Eagles in 1943, and played with Greasy Neale’s club for five seasons until 1947.

Allie played four years of football under Lou Oshins at Brooklyn College. His biggest thrill there came the day underdog Brooklyn rallied to beat City College 28-21.
