• Former Chargers Star Running Back Dies


    SAN DIEGO (CNS) – Former San Diego Chargers star running back Chuck Muncie has died of a heart attack at the age of 60, ESPN reported today.

    Muncie played for the Bolts from 1980 to 1984, when drug problems forced him into retirement. Muncie went on to spend 18 months in a federal California prison for cocaine distribution.

    After prison, he turned his life around and founded the Chuck Muncie Youth Foundation in 1997. The Southern California-based foundation offers youths several services, including mentoring, camps, tattoo removal, school assistance and job training.

    “Everything I did and everything I went through in my life has allowed me to do the things I’m doing now,” Muncie told the Los Angeles Times in a 2008 interview. “I’ve been able to tell these guys, ‘Been there, done that, and if you keep doing these things, this is what’s going to happen.”

    Muncie also played for the New Orleans Saints before coming to San Diego.
