Sullivan led Auburn out of a 17-0 hole in the 1970 Iron Bowl to a 33-28 victory, followed by a 35-28 victory over Archie Manning and Ole Miss in the Gator Bowl on January 2, 1971.

Our thoughts are with the Sullivan family and the Auburn football family as they mourn the loss of one of the greatest Tigers to ever step foot on campus. Auburn's first Heisman victor ever - has died, according to his family. "We extend our deepest condolences to the entire Sullivan family".

The Auburn legend coached his final football game in 2014. He also rushed for 18 scores.

Sullivan was a second-round National Football League selection following his time at Auburn, playing for the Falcons from 1972-75 and the Redskins in 1976. After six seasons on the Tigers' staff of Pat Dye, Sullivan became the head coach at TCU.

Before playing for John Carroll Catholic High School, Sullivan attended Blessed Sacrament in West End, and played on the diocese's Toy Bowl football team run by Catholic brothers. After serving as UAB's offensive coordinator from 1999-2006, he remained in his hometown as Samford's head coach from 2007-14. He was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame in 1991.

He entered the Alabama Sports activities Corridor of Fame in 1981. Sullivan also won the Walter Camp Award and was the unanimous All-American quarterback in 1971 - the first of the 10 SEC players who have been the consensus All-American QB.

Sullivan is survived by his spouse, the previous Jean Hicks, and their three youngsters - Kim, Kelly and Patrick Jr.

Sullivan's family issued a statement that he had "died peacefully at home" Sunday morning, surrounded by parents.

"He was diagnosed with cancer in 2003 and fought a long and hard battle as a result of his treatments", the Sullivan family said in a statement released through Auburn University. "The family is appreciative of everyone's outpouring of love and support", the statement said. The 1994 Horned Frogs shared the Southwest Conference championship and played in the Independence Bowl, one of TCU's two bowls in a 32-year span. Brother Chistopher Ilg of the Missionary Servants of the Most Blessed Trinity, a former player for the Cleveland Browns, coached the team, and Sullivan considered Brother Ilg one of the most important influences of his life.
