University of Montana defensive lineman Andrew Harris, the son of a former NFL defensive end, was found dead Tuesday in an apparent suicide, police said.
Harris, 22, was found dead at his home and police were investigating his death as a suicide, Missoula police Sgt. Travis Welsh told the Montana Standard.
Montana’s athletic director Kent Haslam confirmed Harris’ death in a statement.
“All of us in Grizzly Athletics were saddened to hear of Andrew's passing,” he said. “On behalf of our department and the more than 300 student-athletes here at UM, we send our deepest condolences and heartfelt thoughts to the Harris family, and all those who knew and loved Andrew.”
A celebration of Harris’ life was set to take place Saturday.
