Former Miami RB Tyrone Moss dead at 33

Former Miami running back Tyrone Moss, an All-ACC selection in 2005, died Thursday night at age 33. 

Moss’ father Ronald told the Miami Herald his son had been hospitalized with heart trouble. 

“From what I was told, his heart rate was very weak and it was only functioning at 10 percent,’’ Ronald Moss said. “Right now I’m just hurt.”

After a standout career at Blanche Ely High School in Pompano Beach, Fla., that was capped by a 2002 state championship, Moss played for the Hurricanes from 2003-06. 

A steady contributor as a freshman and sophomore, Moss exploded as a junior in 2005, rushing for 701 yards and 12 touchdowns before he tore his ACL against Virginia Tech in the eighth game of the season. Those numbers were enough to earn him first-team All-ACC honors despite the early end to his campaign. 

He never returned to full strength after that injury, finishing out his career in 2006 with a total of 1,942 yards and 26 TDs.
