American boys volleyball coach dies (UPDATED)

This post is updated at the bottom with a statement from James Logan coach Steve Burmaster.

American High boys volleyball coach Eric Cruzada died Monday apparently of a heart attack, the school’s co-athletic director Tom Bischofberger confirmed Tuesday.
“He’s had some health issues the last few weeks, but nobody thought it’d be as severe as this,” Bischofberger said. “He thought it was just minor little things going on, stress-related stuff.”
Bischofberger said an autopsy had not been performed yet but the belief is Cruzada died from a heart attack. He said Cruzada was 42 and a freelance web designer who worked from home, where he lived with his wife and 5-year-old daughter.
Cruzada had coached at American for over six years and had this year’s team in contention for a North Coast Section at-large playoff berth.
