Dale Wolfley’s Brother Craig Thanks Supporters, Shares Assistance for Family

A day after the West Virginia community was rocked by the news about the death of Dale Wolfley, his brother Craig Wolfley has a message to everyone who has reached out to him and his family.

“Thank you for the overwhelming love and support! For those of you that have reached out and wanted to support Dale’s wife and youngest son, we have set up this GoFundMe,” said Craig Wolfley on Twitter (X).

Craig is Dale’s older brother and serves as the radio color analyst for the Pittsburgh Steelers, the NFL team he spent most of his playing career with.

Earlier in the day, WVU head coach Neal Brown offered his own thoughts about Dale.

“I want to send my condolences to Dale Wolfley and his family. 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,” Brown said. “No bigger supporter of West Virginia football than Dale Wolfley. He helped me a lot when I first got here connecting with former players.”

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.

The Wolfley’s other brother Ron also played at WVU, starring in Morgantown in the early 1980s before spending a decade in the NFL. His older brother Craig played at Syracuse before heading to the NFL himself.

Dale Wolfley embodied what it meant to be a Mountaineer, with his high spirit of the old gold and blue. Wolfley worked as a broadcaster and podcast host during his post-playing career.
