The man who helped Brian Kelly and Chuck Martin win national championships at Grand Valley State has been found dead in Michigan.

Lake County Undersheriff Dennis Robinson says Cullen Finnerty's body was found Tuesday night. Robinson says the cause of death isn't yet known, but authorities don't suspect foul play.

Finnerty led Grand Valley State University to three Division II national titles and more than 50 wins during his four years as a starter in Allendale, Mich., last decade.

Authorities have said family members had expressed concern that the 3-year-old may have suffered "a mental episode" before going missing Sunday while fishing along the Baldwin River.

Martin, now the offensive coordinator at Notre Dame, went to Michigan on Tuesday to help assistant in the search.

Prior to learning the news of Finnerty's death, Kelly--the head coach at Notre Dame, said he was praying for the best.
