COLUMBUS, Ohio -- An Ohio coroner says Columbus Crew midfielder Kirk Urso died of a genetic defect of the heart and the death was considered natural.

The 22-year-old Urso was pronounced dead in August at Grant Medical Center after collapsing at a downtown Columbus bar and restaurant.

Franklin County Coroner Jan Gorniak said Friday that Urso died of arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy.

Urso played in six games with the Crew and was rehabbing from a sports-groin injury sustained in May.

Crew president and general manager Mark McCullers says the news helps bring closure to the sudden and tragic loss of Urso.
