Pro-Bowl running back Muncie dies at 60

METAIRIE, La. (AP) — Chuck Muncie, a Pro Bowl running back with both the New Orleans Saints and San Diego Chargers, has died at age 60, the NFL clubs and a family spokesman said.

Muncie family spokesman Vintage Foster of AMF Media Group in San Ramon, Calif., said Muncie died at his Los Angeles-area home on Monday from heart failure.

Muncie was the Saints’ first-round pick, third overall, out of California in 1976.

He played 4½ seasons in New Orleans before being traded in 1980 to San Diego, where he finished his nine-year NFL career.
