Sad news broke late on Thursday evening that former Miami Hurricanes RB Tyrone Moss had passed away.

Multiple teammates, friends, fans, and journalists recalled Moss as a kind individual with a huge, and welcoming, personality.

A native of Pompano Beach, FL, Moss starred for Ely HS from 1999-2003. Running behind a dominant OL, Moss showcased his prodigious talents, ending his prep career as Broward County’s all-time leading rusher with 7,105 yards, a record he holds to this day.

Following his outstanding HS career, Moss committed to the University of Miami, and played for the Canes from 2003-2006. Splitting time and battling injuries, Moss totaled just under 2,000 yards in his 4 seasons of actions. Moss is still in the Miami record books, with the 14th most rushing yards, 10th most carries (412) and 5th most TDs (26) of any Canes RB in history.

The cause of Moss’s death was undisclosed at this time, but has been confirmed by his former HS coach, and Canes Football as well.

Tyrone Moss was 33 years old.

Rest in peace.
