Former Miami Dolphins DE Quentin Moses dies in house fire

Former Georgia defensive end Quentin Moses was one of three people who died in a Georgia house fire early Sunday morning.

Moses was moved outside the engulfed house after being found unconscious, but he later died at Clearview Medical Center.

According to UGA, Moses was a defensive end for the Bulldogs from 2003-05. "Thoughts and prayers go out to his family in this hard time".

Here is a link to his bio on UGA's website. The roof collapsed as the fire department attempted to get the fire under control.

Georgia football coach Kirby Smart offered his condolences upon hearing the news: "Very saddened to learn of the tragic death this morning of Quentin Moses".

"Our thoughts and prayers are with Quentin's family", athletic director Greg McGarity said in a statement. Quentin was an outstanding representative of not only the University of Georgia but also his hometown of Athens.

'On behalf of UGA Athletics, we extend our most honest condolences to his family'.

Following his standout career at Georgia, Moses went on to become a third-round pick of the Oakland Raiders before ultimately playing four seasons with the Miami Dolphins.

Michigan State had a very down season, but the team's fans haven't gone anywhere. As a redshirt junior, Moses received All-SEC honors by amassing 11.5 sacks and 20.5 tackles for loss.

Moses played a key role in Georgia's SEC title run in 2005, winning the team's defensive MVP award.

Most recently, he had been a football coach at Reinhardt University.
