Former Notre Dame and Cincinnati Bengals star Ross Browner dies at age 67

“It is with a heavy heart that I announce the passing of my Father, Ross Browner,” said Browner’s son, former NFL offensive linemen Max Starks, in a Twitter post. “The world has lost a Titan, [a College Football Hall of Fame] member, [Cincinnati Bengals] Legend, but he was most proud of being an [Notre Dame] alumnus. Our hearts are heavy but he is at peace now.”

Starks did not specify how his father passed away.

Browner started all four seasons of his collegiate career at Notre Dame, winning national championships under the direction of head coaches Ara Parseghian and Dan Devine in 1973 and 1977, respectively. He holds a school record for career tackles by a defensive lineman, tackles-for-loss in a single season, career fumbles recoveries, and career tackles-for-loss.

“I would like to extend my condolences to Ross Browner’s family, his teammates and those whose lives he impacted,” said current Notre Dame Football head coach Marcus Freeman. “He set the standard for being a Notre Dame Man.”

Browner played nine seasons with the Bengals and his last with the Green Bay Packers after being the eighth overall pick in the 1978 NFL Draft.

Browner is survived by his wife, Shayla, and two sons.
