Longtime offensive coordinator Tom Moore is no longer a member of the Indianapolis Colts, according to reports.  Moore spent 2010 as a consultant to the club and the previous twelve seasons as the team’s offensive coordinator, leading one of the NFL’s most prolific offenses.

Paul Kuharsky of ESPN reports that the club allowed Moore’s contract to expire “over two months ago,” and that he “is no longer with the team.”  Neither Moore nor the Colts would comment on the issue, according to Phil Richards of the Indianapolis Star.

Moore’s official title last season was “senior offensive assistant,” as wide receivers coach Clyde Christensen was promoted to offensive coordinator, filling the post Moore had held since 1998.

Together with quarterback Peyton Manning, who was drafted by the team in 1998, Moore led an offense that was consistently ranked among the league’s best.  With Moore as offensive coordinator, the Colts would win Super Bowl XLI, in addition to capturing two conference championships, seven division titles, ten playoff appearances, and seven consecutive 12-win seasons.

Moore’s offenses in Indianapolis ranked in the top-5 league-wide in terms of total offense eight times, and led the NFL in points scored in 2004.

Prior to joining the Colts, Moore spent time with the Steelers, Vikings, Lions, and Saints, in addition to serving as an assistant in the collegiate ranks.
