BOONE, N.C. — The war of words between Appalachian State and recently departed head football coach Jerry Moore was escalated on Wednesday when both the legendary coach and ASU Chancellor Dr. Kenneth Peacock released statements.
Moore, who returned home from the National Football Foundation dinner in New York City today, told longtime Winston-Salem Journal beat writer Tommy Bowman that he wanted one more year as head coach and that he'd had not agreed that 2012 would be his final season — refuting the statements made by ASU athletic director Charlie Cobb when Cobb announced Moore's removal on Sunday afternoon.
"I know I never told him this would be my last season," Moore said. "I don’t won’t to offend anybody. There’s not any big, big issues. It was a communication thing between Charlie and I … and I don’t want to cause any issues now."
