January 17, 2013Syracuse University head coach Scott Shafer has stability on both sides of the ball in the form of wide receivers coach Rob Moore and defensive line coach Tim Daoust. The pair will remain on the Orange staff to continue to build the program with Shafer.
"We look forward to having former Syracuse stand out Rob Moore continue to coach the wide receivers," Shafer said. "Rob has done a great job bringing his passion and pride for the Orange to work each day. He has done a fantastic job as a technician in teaching the intricacies of wide receiver play.
"I am also extremely excited to have Tim Daoust back as he has done a great job developing the defensive line these past two seasons. He has the line playing with intensity and aggressiveness that has proven to be successful on the field. Tim is a tireless worker who continues to make a huge difference in the improvement of our defense."
Moore, a Syracuse University standout and NFL All-Pro, returned to his alma mater to coach the Orange wide receivers in 2010. He mentored the tandem of Alec Lemon, the unanimous 2012 All-BIG EAST First Team selection who broke Syracuse records for receptions in a season and career and ranks second on the Orange career receiving yards record list, and Marcus Sales, who closed his career in the top 10 on every Syracuse receiving records list.
A 1989 All-American, Moore still holds the Syracuse record for average receiving yards per game (75.8) and touchdown receptions (22), while his 2,122 career receiving yards is fourth in school history. Moore was the first Orange receiver to amass more than 1,000 receiving yards in one season. He is a member of Syracuse's All-Century Team.
The first overall selection in the 1990 NFL supplemental draft, Moore closed his 12-year pro football career with 628 receptions for 9,386 yards and 49 touchdowns in 153 games. A two-time Pro Bowl selection, Moore earned a spot on the NFL All-Rookie and in 1994 earned All-Pro honors, was named to the Pro Bowl and the Professional Football Writers Association All-NFC Team.
A 12-year National Football League veteran, Moore began his collegiate coaching career as the wide receivers coach for Phoenix Junior College in 2009 after getting a start as the wide receivers at Montclair (N.J.) High School in 2002 and 2003 upon his retirement from the NFL. In 1992, Moore founded the Rob Moore Books and Ball Camp to assist high school football players who aspire to continue their education with SAT preparation, essay writing, and public speaking and to achieve on the field. Moore was a technical consultant for and appeared in the motion picture, Jerry Maguire.
A native of Hempstead, N.Y., Moore earned a BS in sociology from Syracuse in 1990. He has four children, including three daughters, Dakota, Savoy and Meadow and a son, Satchel.
Daoust, who joined the Syracuse staff in 2011 to mentor the Orange defensive ends and coached the entire defensive line in 2012, boasts an 11-year coaching career that includes stints at Northern Illinois University, Illinois State, Cincinnati and Western Michigan. In 2011, Daoust mentored defensive end Chandler Jones, who was the 21st overall selection in the 2012 NFL Draft. This season he developed second-team All-BIG EAST honoree Brandon Sharpe and tackle Jay Bromley, who earned in-season honors for his play. The Syracuse defense ranked sixth nationally in tackles for loss in 2012.
Daoust, who has mentored nine all-conference selections, including three who have been selected in the NFL Draft, came to Syracuse from Central Michigan in 2010, where he was the defensive line coach and developed All-Mid-American Conference Third Team selection Sean Murnane. He also served as the team's academic coordinator.
Prior to his stint at CMU, he was on the staff at Western Michigan for four seasons. He coached the Broncos' defensive line in 2006 and the defensive backs from 2007-09. In 2006, Daoust was the defensive line coach while SU head coach Scott Shafer was the Broncos defensive coordinator. That season, WMU led the nation in interceptions (24), sacks (46) and finished sixth in run defense, seventh in turnover margin, 11th in total defense and 14th in opponent third down conversions. The Bronco defense also broke a 33-year old a Mid-American Conference record by allowing just 76.1 rushing yards per game.
At Western Michigan, Daoust worked directly with All-Mid-American Conference defensive backs Louis Delmas and E.J. Biggers, both of whom were selected in the 2009 NFL Draft. Delmas also was a Phil Steele All-American in 2008. Londen Fryar also was a three-time All-MAC honoree, including two first-team designations, under Daoust. While at Western Michigan, the Broncos played in two Bowl games (2006 International Bowl and 2008 Texas Bowl) and had wins against BCS members Virginia, Iowa and Illinois.
Daoust began his coaching career as a graduate assistant at Northern Illinois during the 2002 and 2003 seasons. He coached cornerbacks at Illinois State in 2004 before serving as a defensive graduate assistant at Cincinnati in 2005.
A native of Toledo, Ohio, Daoust earned a bachelor's degree in history from Wittenberg University. As a defensive end on the Tigers football team (1998-2001), Daoust was a team captain (2000-01) and was a two-time Golden Helmet Award Winner. He earned first-team All-North Coast Athletic Conference honors as a senior and second-team All-NCAC honors as a junior. He finished his career second all-time at Wittenberg with 27.5 career sacks and fourth in the record book for sacks in a season, amassing 10.5 during the 2000 campaign. Wittenberg football went 45-5 during Daoust's career, winning four NCAC championships and making four appearances in the NCAA Division III playoffs. The Tigers reached the quarterfinals in Daoust's junior and senior seasons.
