Sad news to pass along: Jeff Klein has passed away, according to former Auburn teammate, Cole Cubelic.

Cubelic tweeted the news of the former Auburn quarterback’s passing.

Last week, Cubelic shared the news that a GoFundMe page was set up for Klein and his family after the former Tiger quarterback checked into a Columbus, Georgia hospital with “severe back pain.”

Cubelic reminded his followers Wednesday that Klein’s wife and children still need help, asking for assistance from those who are able to donate. Klein was most recently teaching and coaching at Loachapoka High School in Alabama. The GoFundMe page mentions that the family is currently without a sustainable source of income. At the time of publishing, the GoFundMe has raised more than $136,000 off of over 1,200 donations.

Klein was a member of the Auburn football team from 1998-to-2001. Over 3 seasons (1999-2001), he played in 13 games, throwing for 1,139 yards and 7 touchdowns.
