With it being Super Bowl week, besides Philadelphia and New England fans the only happy fans in Football are Tennessee Titans fans. New Head Coach Mike Vrabel is filling out his staff and fans have had much to be excited about.
With the excitement surrounding Defensive Coordinator Dean Pees and Offensive Coordinator Matt LaFleur, it is easy to ignore the rest of the staff. At this point, reports are ticketing Rob Moore as the man for the job of Wide Receivers Coach. This is one of the more difficult tasks on the roster because the Tennessee Titans receivers did not perform well as whole in 2017. Some of this can be credited to the lackluster offense put in place by Mike Mularkey and Terry Robiskie. Overall, there needed to be a change and Moore is one of those exciting changes.
Moore will be tasked with molding the careers of young receivers Corey Davis, Taywan Taylor, and Tajae Sharpe. He also will be looked at to try to keep the progress of Rishard Matthews rolling. Matthews was easily the top receiver on the Titans these past two seasons. The Titans will surely add to their receiver depth this offseason.
Who is he?
Rob Moore is a two-time Pro Bowl wide receiver that spent a total of 11 seasons in the NFL as a player. To go along with his skills as a player, Moore has been a wide receivers coach throughout his coaching career. Starting as the WRs coach for Montclair High School in Montclair, NJ, Moore has moved up from junior college, to college, and eventually the professional ranks.

What to expect?
With new Offensive Coordinator Matt LaFleur, the Tennessee Titans offense will look a lot different than it did last season. Mix that with the skills of the wide receivers on the roster, the Titans should have a solid season in 2018. Moore will look to clean up the drops with the receivers and make sure that they are on the same page as the rest of the offense. This means that Moore will be the liaison between LaFleur and the wide receivers. If they run the wrong route or look lost, it will be Moore that has to answer those questions. There is a lot of talent on the Titans roster at wide receiver. Rob Moore will be in charge of making the most of that Talent.
