High School Football Coach Collapses, Dies

    A school official says a 29-year-old Texas high school football coach has died at a hospital after collapsing.

    Mansfield school district spokesman Richie Escovedo said Tuesday the cause of death was pending for Timberview High School offensive coordinator Cody McCarty.

    Escovedo said the former TCU player and son of Super Bowl winner Mickey McCarty died Sunday. The elder McCarty was a heart transplant recipient who had a stroke at age 35 and died of pancreatic cancer last year.

    Cody McCarty followed his father at TCU, where he was a tight end from 2000 to 2004. He joined the Timberview coaching staff in 2009 after a stint as an assistant at Trinity Valley Community College.

    Mickey McCarty won a Super Bowl with the Kansas City Chiefs in 1969.
