Ernest Moore

Ernest Moore enters his fourth season as defensive coordinator for Valparaiso in 2017. He also works directly with the Crusader defensive backs.

Moore made an immediate impact in his first season heading up the defensive side of the ball, as the 2014 campaign saw Valpo allow 156 fewer points than the previous season. The 2014 squad also surrendered 100.1 fewer yards per game than the 2013 team.

Moore arrived at Valpo in January of 2014 from the University of Chicago, where the former Lehigh assistant spent three seasons. He spent his final two years working as the Maroons' defensive coordinator. Moore graduated from Lehigh in 2008 before beginning his coaching career at Franklin and Marshall that same year.
