Dammit, Marrone: WR Coach Rob Moore Leaving Syracuse For Buffalo Bills

Phil Sears-USA TODAY Sports

Doug Marrone snags one more former SU assistant for the road.

The Great Syracuse To Buffalo Coaching Migration of 2013 was supposed to have taken all of the football coaches it was going to take when Doug Marrone left the Syracuse Orange to become head coach of the Buffalo Bills.

One of only two coaches who stayed behind, SU legend Rob Moore continued to coach wide receivers under Scott Shafer. Alas, Moore finally got the call up to the big leagues Thursday when the Bills announced they had poached him to become their new WR coach.

Moore, 45, will enter his first season in the NFL coaching ranks after spending the past four seasons as the wide receivers coach for Syracuse University.

During his time coaching the Orange, Moore helped lead his alma mater to three bowl victories. Under Moore’s tutelage, WR Alec Lemon finished his career ranked first in the Orange record books for all-time receptions (201) and second in all-time receiving yards (1,780).

It should be noted that Moore was offered the gig last year as well but turned it down.

Under his watch, Moore helped turn Marcus Sales from a bust into a legitimate receiver while Sir Alec Lemon left as the school's all-time leader in receptions.

Good luck to Rob in the NFL. Shame to lose a Syracuse guy from the staff but when the NFL calls, you say yes. The search for his replacement, I'm sure, is well under way. Given how well we recruited at the position this year, it's going to be a pretty cushy gig.

UpdateSounds like George McDonald might just be absorbing WR coaching duties into his OC role.
