Charlie Weis expresses shock, sympathy after death of Declan Sullivan

Charlie Weis expressed his sorrow at the death of Declan Sullivan on Friday.

"It's an awful tragedy and I know that my family, we've been a little bit in the tank over this for a couple days now," Weis said. Sullivan had worked with him for two years when Weis was head coach of the Fighting Irish. "Obviously the Weis family thoughts and prayers are with Declan's family and the whole Notre Dame family in addition. It's just awful."

Sullivan, a junior at Notre Dame, was killed Wednesday when the hydraulic scissor lift on which he was standing as he filmed football practice toppled in a gust of wind in South Bend, Ind. Weis was fired by Notre Dame at the end of last season and is presently the offensive coordinator for the Kansas City Chiefs.
