Super Bowl Champion Tyler Sash Dies at 27

Tyler Sash, a former Iowa Hawkeyes and New York Giants safety, has died, the Iowa state medical examiner’s office confirmed to Variety. He was 27.

Sash was found unresponsive in his home in Oskaloosa, Iowa on Tuesday morning, according to ESPN. The cause of death is under investigation, but no foul play is suspected.

An official said an autopsy is scheduled for Wednesday morning. Funeral arrangements are pending.

Sash was drafted by the New York Giants in the sixth round and went on to win a Super Bowl with the team against the New England Patriots in 2012. He was suspended for the first few games of that season for violating the NFL’s performance-enhancing substance policy and was cut by the Giants before the 2013 season.

Sash played safety for the University of Iowa’s Hawkeyes before going pro. He left school after his junior season.

Iowa’s coach, Kirk Ferentz, addressed Sash’s death in a statement released through the university.

“We are all very saddened to hear about the untimely loss of Tyler,” Ferentz said. “It is always so difficult when it involves someone this young. Our heartfelt condolences and prayers go out to Tyler’s family during this extremely difficult time.”
