Charles Johnson was a former first-round pick in the NFL. He was also a Super Bowl champion. Charles, who played in the NFL for nine seasons, sadly died at the age of 50, and his fans all over are grief-stricken.
According to TMZ, Johnson had been working as an assistant athletic director at a high school in North Carolina. On Tuesday, the school revealed the heartbreaking news. They revealed it in a tweet by stating, “RIP Coach. You will be missed by so many, especially your Husky Family.”
