Tyler Hilinski

Quarterback's death permeates NCAA convention discussions

When Dr. Brian Hainline learned about the apparent suicide of another college athlete, it hit hard. Again.

No, he didn't know Washington State quarterback Tyler Hilinski. But he's heard such stories far too often.

The NCAA's first chief medical officer has coped with friends, patients and other college students who took their own lives and whenever it happens, the same emotions and questions come racing back. So Hainline has put together recommendations that may help college athletic departments understand how to help players.
