Our new Wide Receivers coach. I think I like this hire, but wish we knew more about him. Considering the position he coaches, it is imperative he is a net positive for recruiting over what we had.
Willard mentioned DC, so I wonder if DC is his primary focus or if he will have other regions? Hopefully, they are banking on him recruiting and didn't give him an easy contract saying he doesn't have to do it.

Moorhead is a rising star and he bridges the age gap a bit on our staff. He's 3 years younger than Shane and spent some time in the NFL, he's going to connect well with these kids. By the way, we now have 2 coaches on our staff with Super Bowl rings.
This is his personal profile from Wiki and it's very interesting...
He is the son of Emery Moorehead, a Super Bowl champion who played twelve seasons in the NFL with the New York Giants, Denver Broncos, and Chicago Bears. Aaron and his father are the NFL's 1st father and son team to both have played in and won Super Bowl victories. He is the cousin of former NBA basketball player Brad Daugherty. In 2009 he was a graduate assistant coach (offense) at the University of New Mexico. He is now assistant Wide Receivers Coach at Stanford University. He is friends with professional wrestlers CM Punk and Colt Cabana.
I post all of this knowing little about his actual ability to coach... but he was a heck of a player, a blue collar kind of guy who was an undrafted free-agent and worked his ass off to get on the field. That sounds like a VT guy to me.
Undrafted and made a team that won the Super Bowl. That says to me he is an extremely hard worker that pays attention to detail. You don't go from undrafted to making the team if you don't pay attention to the little details that make you a successful player. That's going to make him a very good coach because he will know the nuances of the position that were needed to beat out others with more talent per se. A 1st rounder might be able to get by on pure athleticism.
I would be interested to hear what kind of personality he is. Does he have a presence that fills the room up? Is he more quiet and reserved? Is he the kind of guy that jokes around with players, creating a rapport with recruits? Is he animated in practice? The moneyball type research skills are intriguing, can any gurus expand on how this works? Did he recruit at Stanford?

we've read that he's the film room 'rainmaker' at Stanford. talent for spotting opposing D's weaknesses and exploiting them - something we've needed imo. curious as to how this went down though. would seem stanford would be reluctant to let a guy like that go....however, i see on stanford site that he's listed as offensive assistant so this appears a step up and i assume more money...so i may have answered my own question
The first part of this video is an interview with Aaron at the end of the Super Bowl against the Bears. He seems very well spoken and he can't be that shy if he's willing to do media interviews. I think his personality is going to kill it on the recruiting trail! And the guy is 6'5" so I think he probably has a presence when he walks in a room.

Lou holtz is embarrassing. I get he loves ND but they shouldn't allow him to be so much of a homer on TV. It's disrespectful to all of CFB
He automatically get my endorsement with this comment. Spot on. Welcome aboard Aaron.
THE ONLY THING I'M ADDICTED TO IS WINNING--CHARLIE SHEEN
