Dr. Moore is on a mission to change the culture of big-time college athletics. And for him it starts with mentoring the Black Male Student-Athlete for success both on and off the field. After working with African American football players at Ohio State during his graduate school years (1994-1998), Dr. Moore decided to do something after realizing that many black athletes were singularly focused on getting to the NFL and not maximizing the college experience.

Dr. Moore has worked with some of the finest athletic departments in the country, including:  LSU (Gerry DiNardo, Nick Saban and Les Miles), Georgia (Mark Richt), and Texas (Will Muschamp and Mack Brown).  He has also worked with schools affliated with the SEC, ACC and Big East conferences.

During his nine years as a faculty member at LSU (1998-2007), Dr. Moore worked extensively with the athletic department and administrators to set up a social support structure for members of the LSU Football team. Since arriving at the University of Texas at Austin in 2007, he has conducted similar work with coaches and support staff of the Longhorn Football team.
