Riders to hire Travis Moore as receivers coach

Travis Moore has been the man tabbed to coach Saskatchewan’s talented group of receivers, per sources.

Moore was a three-time CFL all-star receiver as a player and joined the coaching ranks with Hamilton in 2009 as the Ticats running backs coach. He was the receivers coach in B.C. for three seasons, Edmonton for one year and Ottawa for the past four. In back-to-back seasons (2015 and 2016) the Redblacks had four 1,000-yard receivers under the 47-year-old.

Moore was a Riders receiver for the final three years of his playing career (2003, 2004 and 2005), he produced five 1,000-yard campaigns – one with Saskatchewan – in 11 years, including four consecutive from 1999-2002. The other eight years Moore played for the Calgary Stampeders.
