DAVIE, Fla. -- Former Miami Dolphins offensive lineman Harry Galbreath died Tuesday of an apparent heart ailment. He was just 45 years old.

The Dolphins organization issued a release Tuesday saying Galbreath had been working in Mobile, Alabama at the time of his passing. He most recently spent from 2007-09 as a member of the University of Tennessee's strength and conditioning staff.

Galbreath played nine years in the NFL, including five in Miami after the Dolphins selected him in the eighth round of the 1988 draft out of Tennessee.

He was named to the NFL's All-Rookie team after his first year and later played for the Packers and Jets before leaving the pro ranks following the 1996 season.

Galbreath went on to become an assistant coach at Austin-Peay, Tennessee State and Hampton.
