According to TSN's Rod Smith, Schultz died of a heart attack.

Schultz, born in Burlington, Ont., was selected in the seventh round of the 1983 NFL Draft by the Cowboys after attending and playing football at the University of Arizona. Schultz played 21 career NFL games from 1983-1985, starting in eight contests. The Canadian football player then took his talents to the CFL where he played for Toronto from 1986-1994. Schultz was twice named to the All-CFL team. In 2007, the tackle was listed as a member of the all-time Argos team.

After his playing career, Schultz transitioned to the broadcast booth where he was a member of TSN’s CFL broadcasting team. Schultz was also a member of TSN 1050 Toronto’s radio team. In 2016, he was inducted into the Ontario Sports Hall of Fame.

Since his death was announced, many have taken to social media to pay tribute to the football and broadcasting star.
