Dale Wolfley starred at West Virginia in the late 1980s, playing on the interior of the WVU offensive line from 1986-90, and he transitioned to the coaching ranks following the conclusion of his playing career. He coached at WVU on former head coach Bill Stewart’s staff in the late 2000s, serving as the WVU director of player personnel. He was a key member of WVU’s undefeated regular season squad in 1988 and worked his way into a prominent role throughout his half-decade in Morgantown.
Likey Craig and their other brother Ron Wolfley, who also played at West Virginia, Dale Wofley worked as a broadcaster and podcast host during his post-playing career.
“I want to send my condolences to Dale Wolfley and his family,” WVU head coach Neal Brown said on Monday. “I heard about his passing late yesterday and my first reaction was, you sure? When you think of somebody that has a personality that Wolf did, with a bigger-than-life personality, you just don’t think about those people passing. No bigger supporter of West Virginia football than Dale Wolfley. He helped me a lot when I first got here connecting with former players.”
Maverick Wolfley, Dale’s son, was with the Steelers during rookie minicamp this spring after graduating from West Florida. Click here to contribute to the GoFundMe set up for Dale’s family.
