It appears based on further sources close to the program that Michigan has added another assistant coach. This time they stayed in-state and picked up Central Michigan’s tight ends coach, Sherrone Moore.
While the exact position on the staff is unknown as an offensive assistant, he recently appeared on the Michigan online directory. Moore would be the third coaching hire this month after Dan Enos and Al Washington.
Moore has been with Central Michigan for the last four years and has been the assistant head coach, tight ends coach and recruiting coordinator. Prior to being at CMU, Moore spent five years with Louisville, two as the tight ends coach after a three-year period as a grad assistant. He also earned a Master’s degree from Louisville in sports administration. In his two years as part of the coaching staff, Louisville had a record of 23-3, which included a BCS Sugar Bowl win over Florida and a Big East title in 2012.
He played two years at Oklahoma as a lineman through 2007 where he earned his bachelor’s degree. He played in 14 games and helped the Sooners win two Big 12 championships. Prior to that, he spent two years at Butler County (KS) Community College, which had a 20-3 record and won two conference championships there.
Everywhere he’s gone, he’s won, and knows with his experience to connect with recruits, players and coaches. Per Sam Webb, Tampa and Chicago are his out-of-state recruiting stomping grounds.
Allen Trieu covers the Midwest football recruiting for 247Sports. He was recently on The Michigan Insider on WTKA with Sam Webb to share his thoughts about the recent staff hires if Moore, Enos and Washington’s recruiting talent.
Eno — “He had a hand in them (Michigan State) doing well in-state and Detroit. If you look at where he went after, it was the work he did as an in-state recruiter that got his job at Central Michigan.”
Washington — “As of the early signing period, Cincinnati has the best non-power-five class, according to 247Sports. He’s known for his personality, youth and energy.”
His recruiting experience area is Ohio and allowed in-state recruits to choose Cincinnati over bigger name brand schools.
Moore — “He’s worked really hard and moved up there in a short amount of time. People assume that if he’s at Central it was for in-state recruiting, but it’s not. He’s recruited all over Florida, Georgia and New Jersey. He’s an additional help in those areas. He’s a really good hire.”
