Andrew "Scrappy" Moore at one time held the record for longest coaching service at one school. In 1927, he signed on with the University of Chattanooga as assistant coach. In 1931, he moved up to head coach. The school changed its name to University of Tennessee at Chattanooga, and Scrappy stayed on the job. He led his teams 1931-42. The school dropped football during the war years 1943-44, and when the sport was resumed Scrappy was again on the job. He was head man 1945 through 1967, and his record was 170-147-14. His nickname, "Scrappy", was given him during his days as a Georgia quarterback. In 1967, his final year as head coach, the American Football Coaches Association named him Coach of the Year in the college division. He served two more years at the Chattanooga school as director of athletics. This gave him a total of 43 years with the school, 35 as head football coach.
