Quentin Moses, who played for three different NFL teams including the Miami Dolphins, died in a house fire in Monroe, Georgia, on Sunday morning that also killed a woman and her daughter.

Firefighters and police rushed to the scene around 6 a.m. on Sunday after a neighbor reported seeing flames coming from the back of the house, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported. Melanie Anderson said she banged on the doors and windows of the house to try to get their attention, then a man broke out a window and released smoke until the fire department arrived.

An unconscious Moses was carried from the home to try to get him away from the smoke, but he was pronounced dead at Clearview Medical Center, the AJC reported. Andria Godard, 31, and her 10-year-old daughter Jasmine were found dead inside the home.

Moses played tight end for the Miami Dolphins for four years, then became an assistant coach at Reinhardt University. He was a top player at the University of Georgia and was named defensive MVP in 2005 when the team won its conference, the Sun reported.

University of Georgia athletic director Greg McGarity said, “Our thoughts and prayers are with Quentin’s family. We are shocked and saddened by this tragic news. 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 sincere condolences to his family,” the Sun reported.

Reinhardt University said in a statement that they also tweeted, “You will forever be remembered for your love for the game of football and your love for young adults. Rest in Peace Coach Moses. We love you.”
