09:00 AM ET 08.13 | Former Notre Dame football defensive coordinator and NFL player Corwin Brown was taken from his home Friday night with a self-inflicted gunshot wound after a nearly seven-hour standoff, police said. St. Joseph County Metro Homicide Commander Tim Corbett said Friday night he did not know whether Brown's injuries were life-threatening.

Indeed...

Wow, when I first read it I thought it was a metaphoric headline, but it is literally true. Tragic, so sorry to read this. He will be in my thoughts and prayers. My next thought would be why is this a Fannation topic. This is a news topic. If later they want to bring it around for discussion such as did he have RBT or something that would be good, but what are we supposed to say or comment on about such a tragic occurrence?

He was not the coach at Pitt and he was never arrested before for domestic violence. That was another former ND coach, Mike Haywood. Get you facts straight before disparaging someone.

I was actually watching this on the local news yesterday. Funny they never mentioned it was Corwin Brown's house. Damn, Mcfadden's and their shabby reporting...

I thought I read in the south bend tribune today that it said he had some domestic dispute. The Pitt thing I think you're right on.

Damn. Thats some <hit. People are so f ed up sometimes to say that to him.Makes you wonder if there was some sort of repetitive brain trauma from his playing days that would cause the violence and finally the shooting.Sad stuff.

First thing I asked myself, "...is this another case of delayed brain trauma now showing symptoms...?"
Really sad story, sounds like his life imploding. Really feel for his family, wife and kids had to witness this episode.

He was probably just having bad day. I have days like that myself.

Guess that's why he shot himself...was it in the foot? They should've yelled Be a ND man today, and he probably would've done the right thing.

????????
Is there a lame effort at humor in here? Way to go guy, very appropriate. The man is in despair and you think it's funny!

Shoot like a Champion Today.

He performed just like I remember everyone on their football team performing.

Wake up the sick-o's.

I think this is meant to be an insult of some kind but I fail to see the connection. Every single person on the football team perfomed in a similar fashion? Why do you limit your insults to only his association with ND? Why not pursue his family, high school coach, college team etc. Come on... you can hurl insults better than that!

That's a great question.

I guess neither I, nor you, nor most anyone reading this knows who is in his family, or who his high school coach was, or where he played college bowl, etc. So it would be pretty pointless making a joke about that, unless I was a part of his inner circle jerk. So all I we all really know is that Notre Dame thought he was of high moral fiber, or else he would not have been hired by Fr. Notre Dame to coach there. So I can only hurl my **** in the direction of your golden dome. I'm sure it won't be the last glob headed your way this year.
