Mal Moore (born December 19, 1939 in Dozier, Alabama) is the current Director of Athletics for the University of Alabama. On November 23, 1999, he was hired to his current position after spending almost thirty years in other areas with the university. During his time at the university, Moore was part of seven National Championship teams between 1961 and 1992.

Biography

As a scholarship player from 1958–1962, Moore played as a career backup QB for legendary coach Bear Bryant. During his playing time at Alabama, Moore earned his bachelor's degree in sociology in 1963 and his master's degree in secondary education in 1964. He began his coaching career as secondary coach, and then moved to coach quarterbacks in 1970. He remained on Alabama's staff until Bryant retired in 1982. He then joined Gerry Faust's staff at Notre Dame as an assistant coach. Moore returned to the University of Alabama in 1990 as quarterbacks coach.

Athletic Director

In 1994, Moore moved into the UA Athletic Department as one of the many legacy projects placed in assistant athletic director's positions. After an exhaustive search by the UA Board of Trustees, Moore took over as Athletic Director in 1999. Moore was instrumental in the hiring of four head football including Dennis Franchione, Mike Price, Mike Shula, and Nick Saban. He also oversaw various facility improvements: Bryant-Denny Stadium expanded to its current capacity of over 90,000 seats, renovations were made to Coleman Coliseum in 2005, as well as new tennis, soccer, and softball stadiums.

In early 2009, Moore turned the day-to-day operations of the athletic department over to Dave Hart, who was a former UA basketball player under the legendary Coach C. M. Newton and also one-time athletic director at Florida State University. However, Coach Moore is still actively involved in oversight and fundraising for the University, leading the charge for an $80 million expansion of the south end zone at Bryant-Denny Stadium.
