One of the most decorated players in Stephen F. Austin history, Jeremy Moses returns to his alma mater as an assistant coach. The first player in school or Southland Conference history to win the Walter Payton Award, Moses will coach the SFA quarterbacks after spending last season working with the inside receivers.
Moses enters the 2013 season with the advantage of working with a senior quarterback in Brady Attaway. Moses and Attaway already have a strong understanding of each other's strengths. Attaway served as the backup to Moses during the 'Jacks' 2010 Southland Conference title run.
Named to numerous All-America teams during his collegiate career, Moses rewrote the school and conference record books on his way to being named the NCAA FCS National Player of the Year. A two-time SLC Player of the Year selection, Moses left SFA as the NCAA's all-time leader in completions at the FCS level. He also became the first player in Southland history to receive the Walter Payton Award, an award given to the national player of the year.
Moses' biggest career highlight did not come in the form individual honors, but team gains. Moses was a key factor in helping SFA transform itself from an 0-11 program in 2007, to a top-10 team that won the conference title two years later. The following season the Lumberjacks rattled off another top-10 campaign and their second-straight conference title. It was the first time in school history SFA recorded back-to-back conference titles.
Following his playing career, Moses spent one season at North Alabama as an assistant on Terry Bowden's coaching staff. The 2011 SFA graduate is married to the former Jessica Miller.
