In Super Bowl XX, the Chicago Bears beat the New England Patriots 46 - 10. At the end of the game, the Bears defense carried Buddy Ryan off the field on their shoulders. Why was this act so significant and historical?

Was it the first time someone other than the Head Coach was carried off the field?

Scotsman gave me the detail I was looking for. Mike Ditka was also carried off the field but by hoisting up their defensive coordinator ol' Buddy Ryan, the team made an extra footnote in history. It had never been done and actually until guys like Ryan showed the world that the defensive and offensive coordinators could make or break football teams, all of the attention went to the team's head coach.
