After spending the previous four seasons working alongside head coach Kevin Sumlin at the University of Houston, former Texas A&M baseball standout Justin Moore is in his second year as the Associate Athletic Director for Football for the Aggies.
Moore oversees every aspect of the Aggie football program including team travel, departmental budget, personnel and staffing, recruiting, day-to-day operations and is a member of the Athletics Department’s Senior Staff. He serves as the football program’s liaison to the 12th Man Foundation, University administration, and all other units within the athletic department.
Moore was a part of one of the most successful eras of UH football with the Cougars winning the most games in any four-year period in school history and posting a pair of Conference USA West Division titles. The Cougars made bowl game appearances in three of the four seasons Moore spent at UH, including a victory in the TicketCity Bowl to cap a 13-1 campaign in 2011. UH reached as high as No. 6 in the Bowl Championship Series ranking in 2011, and finished the season at No. 19 -- the highest final BCS ranking in school history. The Cougars’ bowl game victory in Sumlin and Moore’s first year in 2008 was UH’s first in 28 seasons.

During Moore’s stay in Houston, the football student-athletes excelled in the classroom, posting the two highest team grade point averages and passing the most hours per semester in school history.
Moore also coordinated and oversaw several major football facility improvements, including renovations of the locker room, meeting rooms and the football lobby area.
He created and oversaw all football-specific fundraising at UH, which included initiating the highly successful “The Huddle” and “46ers.” He started UH’s Football Fantasy Camp and oversaw the Kevin Sumlin Golf Classic, the Former Players Golf Tournament and the annual Football Banquet.
He served on a variety of decision-making councils at UH, including the newly-formed UH Branding committee and the Department Substance Abuse Policy committee. He also served on the hiring committee for the head baseball coach, Associate AD/Communications and Assistant AD/Marketing.
Prior to joining Houston, Moore spent two years as special assistant to the senior associate athletics director at Texas A&M. In this role Moore coordinated and led the NCAA certification process, assisted with football scheduling and assisted and coordinated all student financial aid. He also coordinated and supervised all activities associated with agent interviews, NFL pro-day and all educational seminars and activities for student-athletes and their parents.
Moore graduated from Texas A&M in 2004 with a degree in finance and later earned a master’s degree in sport management. He was a two-time captain for the Aggie baseball team where he starred from 2000-2004. Named a Freshman All-American pitcher in 2001, Moore was twice named to the All-Big 12 Team, was a two-time recipient of the Pat Olsen Most Valuable Pitcher Award (2001-2002) and was named to the Academic All-Big 12 Team four straight years.
