Jerry Van Dyke dies at 86
    2018-January-8  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

JERRY VAN DYKE, the younger brother of Dick Van Dyke who earned four Emmy nominations for playing the befuddled defensive coordinator Luther Van Dam on the ABC comedy “Coach,” has died. He was 86.

Van Dyke died Friday at his ranch in Hot Spring County in Arkansas, according to the Associated Press. His wife, Shirley Ann Jones, was by his side. No cause was immediately known.

Born in Danville, Illinois in 1931, Van Dyke pursued standup comedy came into the spotlight in 1962 when he appeared as Stacey Petrie on the “Dick Van Dyke Show.”

He also appeared on CBS’ “The Ed Sullivan Show” and eventually became a regular on “The Judy Garland Show.” His other early TV credits include “GE True,” “The Andy Griffith Show” as well as the short-lived shows “AccidentalFamily” and the famously derided, now perpetual Worst Show Ever contender “My Mother the Car.” He also appeared on “The Mary Tyler Moore Show,” “Love, American Style” and “Fantasy Island.” He reteamed with his brother in 1973 for “The New Dick Van Dyke” in a different role.

In 1989, he was cast in the ABC sitcom “Coach” opposite Craig T. Nelson as Assistant Coach Luther Van Dam. This would become his best-known role. The show ran for nine seasons between 1989 and 1997, which earned Van Dyke four Emmy nominations.
