Playing Career[edit]

In 153 games played (146 starts), Moore registered 628 receptions for 9,368 yards and 49 touchdowns.

His younger brother is Linebacker Brandon Moore also played in the NFL.[3]

Footage of Moore appeared in the hit movie Jerry Maguire. The character Rod Tidwell, played by Cuba Gooding, Jr. wore Moore's #85 jersey number.

Coaching[edit]

On January 11, 2010, it was reported that Moore would be named the WR coach at his alma mater, Syracuse University.[4] On February 6, 2014, Moore was added to the Buffalo Bills coaching staff where he will coach receivers.[1] The announcement came one day after National Signing Day, perhaps a courtesy extended to Syracuse by former coach Doug Marrone, so as not to disrupt recruiting efforts Moore had been involved in. Moore was released along with the rest of the Bills coaching staff after Marrone unexpectedly left the Bills after the 2014 season.

It was reported that Moore will be the wide receivers coach for the Oakland Raiders and head coach Jack Del Rio.
