Longtime MU media relations director and football spokesman Chad Moller has been laid off.
Moller had been furloughed since early Jone. He had been MU’s primary football media contact since 2002 and had worked in the department since 1996.
Moller served as the football team’s spokesman and handled media requests through most of Gary Pinkel’s 15 years as head coach and all four seasons under Barry Odom. His official title was associate athletics director for strategic communications.
Moller, a 1991 MU graduate, first worked in the department as a graduate student in 1992-94 and also served as the school’s media contact for women’s golf and previously served as MU’s men’s basketball media liaison under former coach Norm Stewart.
