Ryan Mallett celebrated his new girlfriend Madison Carter weeks before his death

Former NFL quarterback Ryan Mallett announced their romance just weeks before his tragic death in a drowning accident in Florida.

Mallett, a Patriots third-round draft pick in 2011, drowned while vacationing in Destin, Florida with girlfriend Madison Carter, news agency KNWA Fox24 reported Tuesday.

Mallet, 35, confirmed his relationship with Carter, who works in the medical field, in a Facebook post on June 1, 2023.

In a separate post, Mallet also shared a photo of the couple smiling with the caption: “Post appreciation for Dr. Driver/Nurse Madison Carter.”

Mallet and Carter’s Instagram pages appear to be private.

On Tuesday, the White Hall School District in Arkansas, where Mallett worked as a football coach, confirmed his death in a post on their Facebook page.

“It is with great sadness that we share the loss of head coach Ryan Mallett. Coach Mallett was a beloved coach and mentor.”

“We ask that you remember his family, team, students, fellow coaches, and White Hall School District staff during your prayers.”

Mallet was taken from the beach to the hospital, and pronounced dead on arrival, Arkansas-based Deltaplex News reported.

“A group of people in the water near the second sandbar were said to have been struggling to get back to shore,” the Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office said in a statement Tuesday, according to The Sun.

“One individual, an adult male, drowned and rescuers say he was not breathing when I got out. Rescue measures were taken immediately, but the man was pronounced dead at the emergency room in Destin.”

Mallett was previously married to Tiffany Seeley, who works as a OnlyFans model under the pseudonym, “Tiffany Uncensored,” according to OutKick.

Mallet and Seely reportedly went through a messy divorce — which included tribal drama and a court dispute over their dogs — after living as a married couple for just four months from June to October 2020.

Mallett played one season at Michigan before having a career standout at Arkansas from 2008-10, on back-to-back 30 touchdown seasons.

He was selected by the Patriots in the third round (74th overall) in the 2011 NFL Draft – and was the backup to Tom Brady before New England traded him to the Houston Texans in 2014.

Mallett served as a backup in Houston from 2014-2015, and finished his NFL career with the Baltimore Ravens in 2015-2017.

Mallett’s former teammates and coaches shared their public condolences after the news broke.

“We lost a great man,” Brady wrote on his Instagram Story, including a photo of the two in rehearsal. “Thank you for everything Ryan.

“We pray for the Mallett family and all their loved ones tonight.”

“I am deeply saddened by Ryan’s tragic passing,” Patriots coach Bill Belichick said in a statement released by the team. My thoughts and prayers are with his family and the many people whose lives he touched.”
