 Marcellus Wiley Biography

Marcellus Vernon Wiley was born on November 30, 1974, in Compton, California to parents Valerie Howard and Charles Wiley. As a child, he discovered his passion and talent for sports excelling both in football as well as track & field. He was a member of the Los Angeles Jets Youth Track & Field Organization where he won the National 400 meter track & field championship at the age of 13 while simultaneously becoming a Southern California Pop Warner football sensation. His athletic prowess was matched by his equally impressive intellectual acuity. He was a member of the California Scholastic Federation, the National Honor Society and even earned the designation of 1988 National Typewriting Champion, typing 82 words per minute.

He continued to develop his talents at Westchester High School and graduated from Saint Monica Catholic High School where he left his mark as an All-Conference standout performer in Football and Track. Wiley’s academic and athletic achievements granted him admission to Columbia University where he received his Bachelor’s in Sociology. He was also voted team captain, All-Ivy League (twice), Sid Luckman MVP and an All-American in 1997. He helped resurrect the football program from a 2-8 record as a freshman to an 8-2 record as a senior.

Wiley played ten seasons in the NFL starting with the Buffalo Bills (1997-2000), San Diego Chargers (2001-03), Dallas Cowboys (2004) and Jacksonville Jaguars (2005-06). He was selected with the 22nd pick of the second round of the 1997 NFL draft by the Buffalo Bills. He was selected to the AFC Pro Bowl team in 2001 while being voted to the NFL’s top 50 players list twice. Known for his community involvement, he was voted three times by his team as the Walter Payton Man of the year.

In 2006, Wiley was inducted into the Columbia University Athletic Hall of Fame. In 2009, he was named the recipient of the Advocate Award by the Brady Center to Prevent Gun Violence for his invaluable activism and dedication to raising awareness about gun violence. He was inducted into the Ivy League Hall of Fame in 2013.

Today: Wiley is an ESPN Host of television show ‘SportsNation’ and radio show ‘Afternoons with Marcellus & Kelvin’ on ESPNLA 710am. He is also a happily married man and father of two. When not on the air, Wiley is hard at work overseeing his portfolio of business interests, touring as a motivational speaker and using his talents to make a difference in his community. “Project Transition,” Wiley’s charitable organization, provides leadership training to at-risk youth with the goal of creating tomorrow’s thought leaders. In addition, Marcellus is passionate about music. He has over 20 years of DJ experience and has been requested to DJ some of the biggest brand events in the sports and entertainment industries.

Marcellus’ unique experience of having survived the hardships of growing up in one of America’s toughest cities to becoming an Ivy League football star, NFL All-Pro Athlete and a staple in the sports entertainment industry, gives him a unique outlook on life. He is both relatable and adept at delving into topics ranging from sports to social issues with a breadth and depth of understanding. His charismatic personality appeals to a broad fan base making him one of the most well-respected sports analysts in the industry.
