Longtime coach dies of heart attack at 77

Dick "Magic" Johnson, who coached high school football in Lakeville for decades and has his imprint on some of the best quarterbacks who ever played there, died Saturday morning of an apparent heart attack, just hours after attending the Lakeville North-Lakeville South varsity game Friday night. He was 77.
