OSHKOSH, Wis. (AP) – Police say they have recovered the son of Green Bay Packers’ offensive coordinator Joe Philbin from an icy Wisconsin River.

Twenty-one-year-old Michael Philbin disappeared early Sunday morning while out with friends in Oshkosh.

Divers recovered his body from the Fox River near the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh campus on Monday.

An autopsy was scheduled for Tuesday. Results are not expected for at least a month. Oshkosh police Chief Scott Greuel said Tuesday they suspect no foul play.

He said they delayed releasing Philbin’s identity out of respect for his family’s privacy and because there’s no threat to public safety. Greuel declined to release any details of how Philbin became separated from his friends, saying the investigating continues.
