Doug Flutie will be on the call for the Shamrock Series

  Doug Flutie will be on the NBC broadcast of the Shamrock Series as originally planned.

In a tragic series of events, former Boston College quarterback Doug Flutie’s parents died within an hour of each other on Wednesday due to heart attacks. The school released the following statement in regards to what happened:

"The entire Boston College Athletics community was shocked and saddened to learn of the deaths of Richard and Joan Flutie, beloved parents of Bill, Doug, Denise and Darren Flutie and grandparents of BC letterwinner Billy Flutie and current student-athlete Troy Flutie.  We offer our heartfelt condolences and support to the entire Flutie family.  They will remain in our thoughts and prayers.”

Flutie, who has been part of the Notre Dame broadcast team on NBC since 2011, will still broadcast the Shamrock Series between the Irish and his alma mater.

“My Dad had been ill and died of a heart attack in the hospital and my Mom, less than an hour later had a sudden heart attack and passed away,” Flutie wrote on Facebook. “They say you can die of a broken heart and I believe it.”

Our warmest regards go out to Flutie and his family for all that they’ve been through.
