Trust fund set up for paralyzed Cowboys scouting assistant

IRVING, Texas -- A trust fund has been established for the family of Dallas Cowboys scouting assistant Rich Behm, who was paralyzed from the waist down when the team's indoor practice facility collapsed during a thunderstorm Saturday.

The Cowboys said in a news release that Bank of America, in conjunction with the team, would accept donations on behalf of Behm, 33, and his family. Checks can be made payable to the Rich Behm Family Trust Fund at any Bank of America location.

Cowboys spokesman Rich Dalrymple said the team had received a number of calls from people wanting to know how they could help the Behm family.

Cowboys special teams coach Joe DeCamillis and assistant athletic trainer Greg Gaither also were injured in the collapse. Both are expected to be released from the hospital this week after undergoing surgery.
