Reggie Moore To Join UCLA Football Staff
Jan. 3, 2008
Former UCLA wide receiver Reggie Moore will join the Bruin football staff in a position yet to be determined, head coach Rick Neuheisel announced today.
'Reggie is a great Bruin and he will be an asset to our staff,' said Neuheisel. 'I haven't put all the pieces to the puzzle together yet, but he has a lot of experience in different areas. One thing I do know is that he will be involved in alumni relations.'
Moore has spent the last four years (2004-07) coaching the wide receivers at North Dakota State University. He spent the 2003 season as a graduate assistant at the University of Washington (he was hired by Neuheisel but coached for Keith Gilbertson), working with the wide receivers.
During his Bruin career (1987-90), Moore was a three-year starter at wide receiver. He ranks No. 18 on UCLA's all-time list with his 92 career receptions and with his 1,483 yards. He averaged 16.1 yards per catch and scored 10 touchdowns as a Bruin.
Following his collegiate career, Moore played in the National Football League for the New York Jets (1991-93) and the Los Angeles Rams (1993) as a wide receiver and return specialist. He then coached in the high school ranks at James Madison High School in Houston, Texas, for four seasons (1999-2002). He also served as a fire fighter and paramedic with the Houston Fire Department from 1996 to 2003 before joining the staff at the University of Washington.
Moore, 39, earned his BA in History from UCLA in 1991.
