In 2016, Moore led a group of tight ends that included Tyler Conklin, who put together one of the finest seasons for a tight end in CMU history. Conklin had 42 catches for 560 yards and six touchdowns. He earned the John Mackey Tight End of the Week Award in September after a two-touchdown game against Oklahoma State. Conklin also had a game-winning triple overtime TD catch against Northern Illinois and a game-winning, one-handed TD catch against Ohio.
Zach Crouch also was solid in 2016, playing in 10 games with four receptions for 86 yards.
Moore led a a group during the 2015 season that included Ben McCord, who made 39 catches for 612 yards and led the Chippewas with a 15.7-yard-per-catch average while earning Second Team All-Mid-American Conference honors. Zach Crouch also was solid, playing in 10 games with four receptions for 86 yards.
McCord’s shared the team lead with five touchdown receptions and his 612 yards ranked sixth among all Football Bowl Subdivision tight ends. McCord set a CMU record for a tight end with 10 catches at Syracuse last season, and his 83-yard TD reception vs. Monmouth on Sept. 12 was CMU’s longest play from scrimmage of the season.
In 2014, Moore coached a group that included Deon Butler, Ben McCord and Mike Kinville, a trio that combined to make 48 catches for 617 yards. They also played a key role up front in a ground game that averaged 155.2 yards per game on the ground and saw Thomas Rawls amass more than 1,100 rushing yards on the season.
Before coming to CMU, Moore spent five seasons at Louisville, three as a graduate assistant and the final two as the tight ends coach.
In Moore’s two seasons as a full-time assistant, the Cardinals went 23-3 with a BCS bowl appearance and a Big East title in 2012.
Cardinal tight ends caught 43 passes in the 2013, a 13-catch improvement from the previous season. Moore was instrumental in helping the Cardinals' B.J. Butler convert from defensive end to a tight end before the 2013 Sugar Bowl against Florida. Butler caught two passes for 43 yards in that game and played a key role in Louisville's victory over the Gators.
During his time as a graduate assistant, Moore helped Louisville to a pair of bowl appearances and worked with First Team All-BIG EAST offensive guard Mark Wetterer.
Moore played two seasons at Oklahoma on the offensive line, helping the Sooners win two Big 12 championships and play in two BCS bowl games. He saw action in 14 games at offensive guard.
Before playing at Oklahoma, Moore was a two-year starter at Butler County (Kan.) Community College. He was a member of two conference-championship teams that went a combined 20-3. He earned second team all-conference honors. Moore earned his bachelor's degree in communications from Oklahoma in 2008. He and his wife, Kelli, were married in 2015.
