The DeKalb Daily-Chronice says a Siberian husky named Diesel that spent nine years as Northern Illinois University's mascot has died after a lymphoma diagnosis.

The 13-year-old Diesel, who stepped aside in 2013, did go to NIU's season opener on Saturday.

Athletic director Sean Frazier says Diesel will "never be forgotten."
