Former USC Trojans offensive lineman Chris Brown has died at 24, it was announced on Sunday. No cause of death was released.

Brown’s passing is sad news for USC a year after another former lineman Max Tuerk died in 2020.

Brown was a part of the program from 2015 through 2018. He played with current NFL QB Sam Darnold and was a part of the Pac-12 championship squad in 2017. He earned All-Pac-12 Honorable Mention recognition and was the USC Offensive Lineman of the Year.

Current Trojans head coach Clay Helton spoke about the news on Twitter.

Brown went undrafted but wound up signing with the Los Angeles Chargers in 2019. He didn’t stick with the Chargers for long but did play in the XFL for the 2020 season.

Brown played high school football in the Los Angeles area with Loyola high school. He signed with USC in 2014 and enrolled for the following season.
