Report: Jets hire ex-Colts coach Moore

By ESPN.com staff

The New York Post reports the Jets have hired longtime Colts offensive coordinator Tom Moore as a consultant.

From the Post:
Moore, who spent 12 years running the Indianapolis offense, was one of several coaches the Jets brought in during the lockout to meet with the coaching staff. Moore came to New Jersey in April and June. After the second session, Rex Ryan offered him a job with the team.

“Rex and I go way back,” Moore said Thursday. “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.”

Paul Kuharsky wrote about the Jets courting Moore last month.
