Greggs, who had been the university's director of bands, was 85. The cause of death was not released.

The Southern marching band became known as the ''Human Jukebox'' during Greggs' tenure and played at six Super Bowls, four Sugar Bowls and three presidential inaugurations.

Greggs had retired in 2005.

In a news release, Southern's director of bands Lawrence Jackson called Greggs ''an impeccable leader'' who believed in innovation.

Jackson played in Southern's marching band from 1971 to 1975 under Greggs' leadership.
