The 41 year old Moss becomes one of many assistant head coaches throughout the league. Last season, 24 of 31 other NFL clubs listed such a position on their coaching staff.
In his new role, Moss will serve as McCarthy's primary aide and will expand his interactions with the entire football team. The team's linebackers coach in 2006, Moss will continue to oversee that group of extremely talented young players, including A.J. Hawk, the No. 5 overall pick in 2006.
