Former Fresno State and NFL wide receiver Devon Wylie passed away at the age of 35 on Monday, Nov. 13.

His passing was announced by his brother, Douge Wylie via Facebook.

“We wanted to make this post so people who knew and loved Devon could learn of his passing because we don’t have the capacity to reach out to everyone in this hard time,” it reads on the post.

Wylie was a member of the Fresno State football team from 2007-2011 before getting drafted by the Kansas City Chiefs in 2012 as a fourth-round draft pick. 

As a Bulldog, Wylie’s greatest success was as a punt returner, where he led the nation in return yards during the 2011 season.

By his teammates, Wylie was known as “wiggles.”

Former teammate Nikko Motta posted on X, formerly known as Twitter, his thoughts toward the passing. 

After his football career, Wylie transitioned to a musical career where he sang and played guitar.
