Chuck Muncie dies

Former NFL running back Chuck Muncie has died. Reps for the ex-New Orleans Saints confirmed that he passed away Tuesday from a heart attack.

“Sadly, we have learned of the untimely passing of Chuck Muncie,” New Orleans Saints owner Tom Benson said in a statement. “Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family and other loved ones at this difficult time.”

Prior to his death Muncie was known for turning his life around after a troubled career that included drug use and imprisonment. Most recently he was working with at-risk youth and counseling drug addicted adults.

Muncie was 60-years-old.  -danielle canada
