Chris Moore begins his first season at VMI and will handle tight ends and serve as special teams coach.
Moore was the assistant head coach at Indiana Wesleyan for two seasons and was the run game coordinator and helped build the offense into one of the top scoring offenses in the country averaging 39.7 points/game which ranked eighth nationally. He previously served three seasons at Trinity International University (Ill.) as offensive coordinator in 2016 and run game and co-offensive coordinator in 2014 and 2015, respectively.
Moore also held assistant coach positions at Alderson-Broaddus (WV) from 2010-2013 and also served a brief stint at West Virginia Wesleyan as running backs and tight end coach.
Moore is a Liberty University graduate after playing three seasons on the offensive line at William & Mary. In 2010, Moore was a student assistant with the Liberty University staff working on the defensive side of the ball.
“It is great to bring Coach Chris Moore back to the state of Virginia,” said Wachenheim. “He is experienced coach who has worked with multiple position groups and has coordinated offenses. He is very familiar with our style of offense having worked with Coach Brian Sheppard at West Virginia Wesleyan College and Alderson Broaddus University.”
