Keith Mumphery (born June 5, 1992) is an American football wide receiver for the St. Louis BattleHawks of the XFL. He was selected by the Houston Texans in the fifth round of the 2015 NFL Draft.[1] He played college football at Michigan State.[2][3]

College career[edit]

Mumphery committed to play college football at Michigan State University under head coach Mark Dantonio. Throughout his career, he amassed 88 receptions for 1348 yards and 7 touchdowns.

Professional career[edit]

Mumphery was drafted in the fifth round, 175th overall, of the 2015 NFL Draft by the Houston Texans. In his rookie year, he played in 13 games, catching 14 passes for 129 yards. Mumphery also handled punt returns and kickoff returns for the Texans, averaging 7.8 return yards per punt and 24.1 return yards per kickoff.

On June 2, 2017, Mumphery was waived by the Houston Texans because of an allegation of sexual misconduct: the prosecutor would not press charges against Mumphery and he was cleared in the first college investigation, but a second college investigation, conducted by Michigan State College (MSU) without effectual notification to Mumphrey, found him guilty of sexual misconduct.[4] The alleged incident occurred after Mumphrey had been graduated from MSU, while he was pursuing graduate studies and an NFL career simultaneously. Because of this, Mumphery was banned from the MSU campus until December 31, 2018.[5][6] In May 2018, Mumphrey filed a lawsuit against Michigan State, which subsequently settled the case and cleared Mumphrey of any wrongdoing.[7]

In 2019, Mumphery was picked by the Dallas Renegades in the 2020 XFL Draft.[8] He was traded to the St. Louis BattleHawks on December 18, 2019.[9]
