|Coaching career (HC unless noted)|
Gerald Hundley "Jerry" Moore (born July 18, 1939 in Bonham, Texas) is the current head football coach of the Appalachian State University Mountaineers located in the town of Boone in Watauga County, North Carolina. He has filled the position since 1989. Moore has had a winning record in 19 out of the last 20 seasons. He led the Mountaineers to the NCAA Division I-AA Football Championship in 2005. This was the first national championship for any collegiate football team in the state of North Carolina. Moore and the Mountaineers repeated as champions in 2006 and 2007, for the first "three-peat" in Division I FCS/I-AA history.
Moore played wide receiver for the Baylor Bears. He was coached by Sam Boyd in 1958 and John Bridgers in 1959 and 1960. Moore captained the 1960 Gator Bowl team that ended the year as the nation's eleventh-ranked squad.
Moore received degrees from Baylor University in finance and economics.
Moore began his coaching career at Corsicana High School under Texas high school coach Jim Acree. In 1965, he became assistant coach at SMU. After the 1972 season, he joined the Nebraska Cornhuskers as receivers coach, becoming offensive coordinator under coach Tom Osborne in 1978.
In 1979, at North Texas, Moore got his first head coaching job. After two seasons he left UNT for Texas Tech, where he spent five seasons and garnered a record of 16–37–2 before being replaced by David McWilliams. After two years away from football, Moore joined the coaching staff at Arkansas where he remained for five seasons before taking the head coaching position at Appalachian State in 1989.
On September 1, 2007, Jerry Moore led his Appalachian State football team to score one of the biggest upsets in college football history, defeating the then fifth-ranked Michigan Wolverines, 34–32, at Michigan Stadium. This marked the first time a team in a lower subdivision defeated a ranked team in a higher subdivision. It was also the first game and loss for Michigan against a Division I FCS team. Moore had learned the spread offensive scheme that enabled him to defeat Michigan from then-West Virginia coach Rich Rodriguez, whom Michigan hired to succeed Lloyd Carr the following season.
