Brent Moss’ Cause of Death Related to an Illness
Although official sources have not shared Brent Moss’ cause of death at this time, some believed he lost his life because of a severe illness.
Our team does not confirm any rumors about the news, though you can be sure that we are attempting our best to find related information about the tragedy and provide the latest updates as soon as possible; but do not forget that family privacy should be respected.
Moss appeared destined for an outstanding senior season in 1994 and perhaps an NFL career. That all changed in November, nevertheless, when Moss was charged with control of crack cocaine and was later suspended by Alvarez.
Moss ended the season with 833 yards and eight touchdowns on 156 carries and was not selected in the 1995 NFL draft. He was invited to the Miami Dolphins training camp in 1995 but was cut. He marked with the St. Louis Rams and carried 22 times for 90 yards but was cut during training camp in 1996.
Moss had brief stints in NFL Europe, the Arena Football League, and the XFL. He battled drug problems and was arrested several times. In 2017 he was sentenced to a year in prison and one-year extended supervision on a felony charge for possession of cocaine.
“Brent was a great teammate, a good guy, and a big part of the turnaround of the Badger football program,” ex-UW offensive lineman Steve Stark wrote on Twitter. “RIP brother.”
