Lee Roy Selmon Dead After Stroke, According To Sunday Report

After a series of conflicting reports, Tampa Bay Buccaneers great Lee Roy Selmon has died Sunday, according to the Tampa Tribune. Selmon suffered a stroke Friday, with his brother terming his condition "stable" as of Sunday afternoon. 

Selmon was 56 years old. He's best known for his time with the Bucs, with whom he reached the Pro Football Hall of Fame, but he's also a College Football Hall of Famer for his career with the Oklahoma Sooners. He also served as athletic director of the South Florida Bulls after his playing days.

Selmon had an excellent reputation both on and off the field, known for participating in charity and establishing himself as an entrepreneur.

USF coach Skip Holtz found inspiration in Selmon's legacy before the Bulls' Saturday game against Notre Dame, a victory many are thinking of as a tribute to Selmon's memory.
