Wayne Moses enters his seventh season as an assistant coach with the Claremont-Mudd-Scripps football team during the 2022 campaign, working primarily with the team's running backs.

Moses has coached some standout performers in his first five seasons, including SCIAC Newcomer of the Year Justin Edwards in 2021. Edwards didn't move into the starting lineup until the third game of the season, and still broke the program record for rushing touchdowns in a season (16), while adding the eighth-highest single-season rushing total in program history as well (1146 yards). Edwards made it two straight 1000-yard seasons in 2022, finishing the year with 1090 yards and 13 rushing touchdowns.  

In 2018, Moses worked with running back Garrett Cheadle, who was named the SCIAC Offensive Player of the Year after recording the second-highest single-season rushing total in CMS history (1305 yards), including a school-record 274 yards in a win over Whittier. Cheadle was also a second-team All-West Region selection, while helping the Stags to their first SCIAC Championship since 1987 and their first-ever NCAA Tournament berth.

Cheadle earned All-SCIAC honors again in 2019 despite missing time with an injury, finishing with 2987 career rushing yards, third all-time at CMS, and 34 career touchdowns, which also ranks third. Edwards, at the midway point of his career, is on pace to shatter both record with 2256 yards and 29 rushing touchdowns already.    

Prior to joining the CMS staff, Moses recently coached the 2014 and 2015 seasons at the University of Hawaii, and the 2013 season at Army West Point. He is a graduate of the University of Washington and has over 30 years of coaching experience on his resume.
