At this time, it appears Wycheck fell inside his Chattanooga, TN home
and hit his head on Saturday morning.  He was found unresponsive that
afternoon.

Wycheck was an integral part of the Titans franchise when the Houston Oilers relocated to Tennessee and was quickly a fan favorite. He played an instrumental role in the biggest play in Titans history – The Music City Miracle, which sparked the Titans only trip to the Super Bowl. He later served as color commentary for Titans Radio alongside Mike Keith for a decade before stepping down in 2017.

He was a 3-time pro-bowler while with the Titans and is a member of the Tennessee Sports Hall of Fame.

Wycheck moved to Chattanooga, TN this past summer to be closer to his
family.  He leaves behind two adult daughters, Deanna and Madison, both
married, and three grandchildren – Leo, Stevie and August.

The family, per his wishes, plans to work with experts for on-going

made at this time.
