As the architect of the Peyton Manning led offense, Tom Moore went to battle many times with Rex Ryan’s defense. Now they are joining forces. The New York Post is reporting today that the Jets have hired the 72 year old former offensive coordinator to serve in a consulting role.
He’s not going to travel with the Jets, or even work out of the team headquarters in Florham Park, NJ. Instead, he will operate from his South Carolina home, viewing game tapes, and providing his take on the Jets offense to staff members.
The opportunity excited Moore.
“Rex and I go way back,” said Moore, who’s 72. “We’ve had some great games
against each other. I just have so much respect for Rex and his staff and the
organization. When he made the offer, I couldn’t refuse it.”
