San Diego State Football: Kirby Moore Is MWwire’s 2022 Preseason Coordinator Of The Year
The Fresno State Bulldogs offensive coordinator is ready for the big time. He’s our pick as Mountain West football’s top assistant.
A familiar surname on a rival team. Should be fun.
Mountain West Wire’s 2022 preseason honors:
All-Conference Teams | Offensive Player of the Year | Defensive Player of the Year | Special Teams Player of the Year | Freshman of the Year | Newcomer of the Year | Coach of the Year | Coordinator of the Year
If you’re a college football fan, you’re probably familiar with the triumphs of one Kellen Moore, the former Boise State Bronco who became the winningest quarterback in history during his time on the blue and is now the Dallas Cowboys’ offensive coordinator. His younger brother, Kirby Moore, may have the chance to make some headlines himself now as our staff’s pick to be Mountain West football’s top assistant in 2022.
After a comparatively modest playing career of his own at Boise State, Moore first jumped into coaching at the College of Idaho before linking up with Chris Petersen at Washington, where he served as a graduate assistant on a Huskies staff that earned a College Football Playoff bid in 2016. A year later, he was brought to Fresno as a wide receivers coach, adding the title of passing game coordinator in 2020, and then took on play-calling duties for the 2021 New Mexico Bowl when Kalen DeBoer and other members of the staff left for Seattle.
The last year or so, then, has been a remarkable rise to prominence for the Prosser, Washington native. Now staked with leading a loaded Fresno State offense in 2022, big things could lie ahead for both him and the Bulldogs if everything breaks right.
We're mic'd up with offensive coordinator @coachmoorefsu 🗣️
