Tragedy in the CFL today. Long time Winnipeg Blue Bombers defensive line coach Richard Harris died of a heart attack in his office shortly after the team had finished practice. Harris was 63.
"This has struck our entire organization from the top down," Bomber president Jim Bell said in a release. "We are all in a state of shock and first and foremost would like to express our deepest sympathies to his family. The Winnipeg Football Club has lost not only a great coach, but an even better man."
Harris was in his 6th season with the club and also had the title of assistant head coach.
