SAN FRANCISCO — Former star San Francisco 49ers tackle Keith Fahnhorst has died at 66.

The team said Friday he died Tuesday. No cause was given.

Fahnhorst won two Super Bowls in his 14 seasons with the franchise and was an All-Pro in 1984. He started 160 of the 193 games in which he appeared from 1974-87. Only seven more players and one offensive lineman, Len Rohde, appeared in more games for the 49ers.

Fahnhorst was a second-round draft choice in 1974 out of Minnesota, where he was a tight end. He twice won the 49ers' Bobb McKittrick Award, which is given annually to the offensive lineman who best represents the courage and sacrifice displayed by the longtime offensive line coach.
