Early life and playing career

Born in Spokane, Washington, Moe went on to attend Oregon Agricultural College, where he played halfback on the school's football team from 1929 to 1932. Upon the conclusion of his career at Oregon State, he played one season in the National Football League (NFL) for the Chicago Cardinals.

Collegiate coaching

After one season in the NFL, Moe returned to Corvallis, Oregon to become an assistant football coach at Oregon State. He remained with the team in that role from 1933 until the Beavers' appearance in the 1942 Rose Bowl, after which he joined the military and served in the Pacific Theater of World War II.

Following the war, Moe returned to Portland in 1946 and became the head football coach and athletic director at the University of Portland, where he remained until 1948, a year before the school ended its football program. He returned to Oregon State as an assistant football coach from 1949 to 1952, and then became the school's head track and field coach from 1952 to 1958.


Moe was named to the Oregon Sports Hall of Fame in 1982 and the Oregon State University Hall of Fame in 1990. He died in Corvallis in 2001.
