A member of the Boise State Broncos family tragically lost his life over the long holiday weekend.

On Tuesday, Cowboys star pass rusher and Boise State alum DeMarcus Lawrence shared that former teammate Greg Grimes was shot and killed on Independence day.

He was only 31-years-old.

“We lost my brother Greg Grimes this past weekend to an act of senseless gun violence,” Lawrence tweeted. “My family and I hurt for his family and son Ace, for his friends & former teammates, & especially for the young men he no longer gets to mentor like he mentored me when I got to Boise.”

The 31-year-old football coach was killed in a downtown Sacramento shooting early Monday morning. The Sacramento County Sheriff’s Office said Gregory Grimes was killed as people were leaving a nightclub.

He started coaching football at Inderkum High School in 2017.

He played for Boise State from 2008-2012.
