UPDATE: Former Fargo Force Coach Killed by Train

Posted: Updated:

Fargo Police have released the name of a man run over by a train.

Officers found the body of Chad Lewis Johnson, 43, of Fargo along the railroad tracks in the 4200 block of Main Avenue Monday evening.

Police say they do not suspect foul play.

Johnson is a former assistant coach for the Fargo Force hockey team.  The team expressed thoughts and prayers to Johnson's family and friends on it's Twitter account Tuesday morning.

Johnson was most recently the head coach of the Lincoln Stars, also of the USHL, but he resigned in September for personal and health reasons.

In a statement posted at the time team president Jim Pflug said, "Chad has indicated to us that he'd like to return to Fargo so that he can be closer to his family, and address some health issues before they become more serious."

"Chad came in under difficult circumstances, and along with Jimmy McGroarty, helped restore the winning attitude that our organization is known for.  He's a great coach and friend, and we appreciate the sacrifices he's made on our behalf.  We're sorry to see him leave the Stars organization, but support his decision 100%."
