One of the winningest quarterbacks in college football history was found dead in the woods of northern Michigan on Tuesday night, days after disappearing while out fishing near his family's cottage.
Cullen Finnerty, 30, who led Grand Valley State to three Division II national titles and more than 50 wins during his four years as a starter in Allendale, Mich., last decade, went missing Sunday. His body was found about 8 p.m. in the woods within a mile of where he disappeared, said Lake County Undersheriff Dennis Robinson.
The cause of death wasn't immediately clear, but Robinson said foul play wasn't suspected. He said the body was not in the water and was found in a wooded area in Webber Township, near the family's cottage. An autopsy would be needed to determine how Finnerty died, the undersheriff said.
