Moore Joins Georgia Tech Football's Player Personnel Staff
Veteran coach to help coordinate Yellow Jackets' recruiting efforts
THE FLATS - Boasting a dozen years of experience as a college football coach and recruiter, Cody Moore has joined Georgia Tech's football staff as associate director of player personnel, Tech announced on Monday.
"I'm excited to welcome Cody to our staff," Georgia Tech head coach Paul Johnson said. "He brings a track record of success as a talent evaluator and I think he'll be a great asset to our recruiting efforts."
Moore comes to The Flats after three seasons as defensive line coach at Abilene Christian. At ACU, he helped lead the program through its transition from NCAA Division II to NCAA Division I FCS and assisted in the efforts that saw the Wildcats land the nation's No. 9-ranked FCS recruiting class in 2016.
Prior to his three-season stint at Abilene Christian, Moore was the assistant recruiting coordinator at Arkansas, where he helped the Razorbacks bring in a recruiting class ranked among the nation's top 30 in 2014. His career also includes stints at Central Arkansas (interior defensive line coach/recruiting coordinator -- 2010-12), Texas A&M (defensive quality control -- 2009), Auburn (defensive administrative assistant-- 2007-08) and Hardin-Simmons (defensive graduate assistant -- 2005-06).
In addition to his prowess as a recruiter, Moore's career highlights also include helping lead Central Arkansas to the second round of the FCS playoffs in 2011 and 2012, working with Texas A&M's Von Miller, who led FBS with 17.5 sacks in 2009, and assisting with an Auburn defensive unit that ranked sixth in the nation in total defense in 2007.
"I am very thankful for the opportunity to be a part of the Georgia Tech football family and I'm excited to join Coach Johnson's staff," Moore said. "Coach Johnson has developed a winning program and I look forward to contributing to the success of the Yellow Jackets. I believe that Tech can offer a student-athlete the complete college experience with top-notch athletics and a world-class education. My family and I are eager to be part of a program with such rich history and traditions."
Moore and his wife, Kristen, have three children: two daughters, Bentley (7) and Avery (8 months), and a son, Cooper (3).
