According to the LA Times:
"Former NFL star and "Police Academy" movie actor Bubba Smith was found dead Wednesday at his Los Angeles home, according to police and coroner's office officials. He was 66.

The L.A. County coroner's office said it has not determined a cause of death, but officials believe he died of natural causes."

He was also the huge guy in the Police academy movies with Steve Guttenberg. Watch some clips of the big guy and remember him fondly.

And who could forget his awesome Miller Lite commercials in the 80's.
