Although Joe Moorhead's stint as head coach at Mississippi State didn't go according to plan, he still appreciated his time there and in the surrounding community.
Now, following in the footsteps of Oregon Ducks head coach Mario Cristobal who along with his wife Jessica fed the Eugene Police Department this week, Moorhead fed a police department but he chose the one from the last community he coached in: Starkville.
Despite no longer residing in Starkville, Moorhead made the classy move of donating them lunch to show his appreciation for their hard work during the COVID-19 pandemic, by purchasing them some Papa John's pizza.
The new Oregon Offensive Coordinator responded to Starkville PD's thankful post with one of his own.
You’re very welcome. Keep up the great work. My family and I are very appreciative of everything you have done and continue to do for the community. Particularly in this time of uncertainty. God Bless 🙏🏻 https://t.co/jAtYuhj0EC— Coach Joe Moorhead (@BallCoachJoeMo) April 8, 2020
"You’re very welcome. Keep up the great work," said Moorhead. "My family and I are very appreciative of everything you have done and continue to do for the community. Particularly in this time of uncertainty. God Bless"
The Mississippi State family gave Moorhead well-deserved recognition for the kind gesture.
