Veteran coach takes over the defense as part of coaching staff restructuring
A former standout at Stanford who spent a couple of seasons in the NFL, Casey Moore returns to the Wolf Pack staff in 2011, this time as the team's running backs coach. Moore began his tenure in Reno in 2010, serving as Nevada's quality control coach on the offensive side of the ball and assisting head coach Chris Ault with the coaching of the team's quarterbacks.
In taking over the backfield, Moore has the challenge of maintain the production that Nevada has enjoyed in recent years since the switch to the Pistol offense. Since 2005, Nevada has had a running back named first-team All-WAC every year except one (2006).
But Moore is up to the challenge and has the credentials to be successful at Nevada.
Moore is a native of Largo, Fla., where he was an all-state football player and a three-sport athlete at St. Petersburg Catholic High School. He went to Stanford where, after redshirting in 1998, became a starter as a redshirt freshman in 1999. He started all four seasons (44 consecutive games) for the Cardinal and was a two-time first-team Pac-10 All-Academic selection. He earned honorable mention all-conference in 2002.
Moore was picked in the seventh round of the NFL draft in 2003 by the Carolina Panthers and has an NFC Championship ring from his time with the Panthers. Moore also played with the Arizona Cardinals.
Following his NFL career, Moore returned to Stanford, where he worked two seasons as a graduate assistant coach. He received a bachelor's degree in public policy in 2003 and he holds a Master's degree from Stanford in Policy Organization and Leadership Studies (2009).
