Tyler Moody is no longer with the staff as he left for another opportunity. He was only here during the 2010 season. Wish the best of luck to Tyler!!

Matt Vautour is one the least informative people about UMass football. For "covering" UMass sports he didn't realize Tyler Moody has been on the staff the past two years as an assistant offensive line coach, and has now left for Stonehill College. When he was at Amherst College he was an assistant linebackers coach. Matty V must be doing his coverage pro bono because his columns aren't worth a dime.

On a positive note I hope this special teams coordinator does a great job. Our return game flourished last year and kickoff team (coverage part) was good and could be great if we get solid kicking on it.

I'd recheck the info on Tyler Moody, He worked for the team the past year or so but left for another job.

You are a season late on Moody. He was with the team last year.

OK, the way Matty phrased it, I thought Moody had returned. He is still on the UMass website roster.
