On December 28, 2019, she passed away in a plane crash in Lafayette, Louisiana, while traveling to Atlanta for LSU’s Peach Bowl game. McCord was one of five people who perished in a small plane crash in Louisiana. She was only 30 years old.
McCord and the others were traveling to see the Peach Bowl when the plane crashed near Lafayette, WDSU-TV reported. The plane crash’s cause is not yet clear; those who knew Carley described her as a rising sports sideline reporter with a vibrant personality.
J.K. Lockhart on Facebook “Everyone who knew Carley Ann was just waiting for her to hit ESPN and take the country by storm. She was one of the most driven people I’ve ever known. I’ll miss her spot on fantasy football advice, shade towards THE Ohio State University, her fierce loyalty to her father-in-law when people tried to bash his play calling, and how she never took herself too seriously. I hope Coach E calls the game of his life tonight in her honor.”
The other victims were named by WAFB-TV as Ian E. Biggs, the plane’s pilot, age 51; Robert Vaughn Crisp II, age 59; Gretchen D. Vincent, age 51; and Michael Walker Vincent, age 15. Stephen Wade Berzas, 37, was a passenger in the plane but survived and was taken to the hospital.
Five people died. A car on the ground burst into flames. The plane crashed about 1 mile from Lafayette Regional Airport and it was going to a “college football playoff game in Atlanta between Louisiana State University and Oklahoma,” according to the AP.
But ESPN viewers were appalled on Saturday after an announcer made insensitive comments regarding the death of a college football coach’s daughter-in-law.
