The Canadian Football League was in mourning on Friday with the news of the death of Chris Schultz.

Schultz died on Thursday, reportedly of a heart attack, at the age of 61.

A larger-than-life man who won the Grey Cup in 1991 with the Toronto Argonauts and was named to the Argos’ all-time team in 2007, Schultz became a popular CFL analyst on The Fan 590 and TSN following his retirement from the game.

A native of Burlington, Ont., Schultz played college football at the University of Arizona and was drafted by the Dallas Cowboys in the seventh round in 1983. Following three seasons in the National Football League, Schultz in 1986 joined the Argos, who had drafted him in 1982.
