TEMPE -- Former Arizona State football coach Bruce Snyder has died after a 10-month fight against cancer. He was 69.

Snyder died Monday, the university said on its athletic Web site. He coached the Sun Devils from 1992 to 2000. His 1996 team went 11-0 in the regular season before a dramatic 20-17 loss to Ohio State in the Rose Bowl.

Snyder also was head coach at Utah State from 1976 to 1982 and California from 1987 to 1991.

He was diagnosed with cancer last June.
