West Virginia offensive line and assistant head coach Matt Moore was on the Big 12 Conference coaches call on Monday in place of head coach Neal Brown, who was unavailable.

The Mountaineers are entering their first bye week after a run of five games in five weeks that represented the longest such stretch of any team in the Big 12.

Perhaps no positional group had a more grueling stretch than the offensive and defensive lines, so Moore’s perspective on the status of the team’s offensive front and its prospects moving forward was a welcome one.

“He has been improving tremendously,” Moore said of Moorer. “He’s been getting better, getting better and getting more comfortable at his position. I just felt like this week he was ready and with John Hughes being dinged up and not at full speed, he got a chance to step in there in the second half and played really well. He had a couple of knock-downs and played with a lot of passion and played really hard.
