Bucs offensive consultant Tom Moore returning for 46th year of coaching in NFL

In an offseason where numerous Tampa Bay Buccaneers coaches are leaving the team, one of Tampa Bay’s will be coming back for his 46th year in the NFL.

At age 85, Bucs offensive assistant Tom Moore is staying with Tampa Bay, per Fox Sports’ Peter Schrager. Moore has been with the Bucs since 2019, but his NFL heritage goes back much farther than that.

Moore first started coaching in 1961 as a graduate assistant at Iowa, and his first NFL job was with the Pittsburgh Steelers as wide receivers coach in 1977. Moore has coached for a number of teams, and his most notable stint came in with the Indianapolis Colts as offensive coordinator/senior consultant from 1998-2010, when he oversaw the development of Peyton Manning and earned a Super Bowl XLI ring. Moore has been a part of four Super Bowl victories, the latest coming with the Bucs in Super Bowl LV.

Moore came to Tampa Bay in 2019 under Bruce Arians, whom he had worked with in Arizona. He has stayed with the team since Arians retired, however, and now he’s set to return for another year with the Bucs offense.
