From the Bombers website:
The Winnipeg Football Club would like to express its deepest condolences to the family of Defensive Line and Assistant Head Coach Richard Harris, who was taken to hospital and passed away earlier this afternoon.
“This has struck our entire organization from the top down,? said Blue Bomber President Jim Bell. “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 joined the Blue Bombers in 2006 as the team’s Defensive Line Coach. He was appointed Assistant Head Coach prior to the 2011 season.
The Football Club will have no other comment on this matter at this time.
My deepest sympathies to his family, friends and players. I never met Mr. Harris personally but everything I had heard about him was he was an incredibly classy man who always took time to talk to fans. He will be greatly missed.
