MILWAUKEE -- Former Green Bay Packers cornerback Bob Jeter,
the father of Wisconsin-Milwaukee men's basketball coach Rob Jeter,
has died.

Wisconsin-Milwaukee spokesman Kevin O'Connor said Rob Jeter
learned of the death Thursday afternoon and went to join family
members in Chicago, where his father lived. He said Rob Jeter told
him by phone that his father was believed to have died of cardiac
arrest.

O'Connor said Rob Jeter plans to rejoin his team in time for
Saturday's game with crosstown rival Marquette.

Bob Jeter, who was 71, played on the Green Bay teams that won
the NFL championship in 1965 and the first two Super Bowls. He
played for the Packers from 1963-70 and was with the Chicago Bears
from 1971-73. He was inducted in 1985 into the Packers Hall of
Fame.
