Tom Moore no longer with Colts
By Paul Kuharsky
Tom Moore, who coordinated the Indianapolis Colts' high-flying offense for 12 years and held a reduced role last season, quietly had his contract expire over two months ago and is no longer with the team, ESPN.com has confirmed.
While he discussed the Tennessee Titans' offensive coordinator job with Mike Munchak before the Titans hired Chris Palmer, his official departure from the Colts was not reported.
Clyde Christensen was elevated to offensive coordinator last season, with Moore serving as senior offensive assistant. At the moment, Moore, who's 72 and also coached with the Vikings, Steelers, Lions and Saints, is retired.
As he started his book tour last week, Jets coach Rex Ryan said the team brought in Moore as part of a panel of experts on address New York's weaknesses.
"We gotta get better in the red zone, so we're bringing people in," Ryan said. "We've already brought in Tom Moore from the Colts; he was out consulting with us for a couple of days. We're going to bring in other great coaches that just want to talk football."
