Sherrone Moore Joins Football Staff
MOUNT PLEASANT, Mich. – Sherrone Moore has joined the Central Michigan football staff as its tight ends coach.

“Sherrone was a part of one of the top staffs in the country during his time at Louisville and I feel extremely fortunate that we were able to add him to our staff,” CMU head coach Dan Enos said. “As both a coach and a player, he has great experience at both tight end and on the offensive line. He is a great teacher who brought out the best in his players while at Louisville.”

Moore has spent the past five seasons with the Louisville football program including the last two as the tight ends coach. He also served as a graduate assistant from 2009-11 with his primary focus being the offensive line.

“I am honored and happy to be a part of coach Enos' staff and the Central Michigan family,” Moore said. “This program has a great tradition and I look forward to helping continue to develop the talented, young student-athletes that are here and also help develop them as men.”

In his two seasons as a full-time assistant at UL, the program went 23-3 with a BCS bowl appearance and a BIG EAST title in 2012. Cardinal tight ends caught 43 passes this past season, an improvement over 2012 when they recorded 30 catches. Junior Gerald Christian led the group with a career-best 28 receptions for 426 yards and four touchdowns.

Moore also helped B.J. Butler convert from a defensive end to a tight end before the 2013 Sugar Bowl versus Florida. Butler caught two passes for 43 yards in that game and was instrumental in Louisville’s victory over the Gators.

During his time as a graduate assistant, Moore helped the Cardinals 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. Moore came to OU from Butler County Community College, where he was a two-year starter. He helped Butler to two conference titles and a 20-3 record in two seasons, earning second team all-conference honors.

Moore replaces Butch Barry, who moved over to coach the offensive line.
