LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) -- Louisville coach Charlie Strong says he's elevated Shawn Watson to offensive coordinator and hired Sherrone Moore to coach tight ends.

Strong also announced Monday that offensive line coach Dave Borberly will be the running game coordinator.

Watson served as quarterbacks coach last season and took over play-calling duties four games into the season. He's replacing Mike Sanford, who left the staff six games into the season.

Before joining Louisville, Watson was the offensive coordinator at Nebraska for four years.

Moore spent the last three years as an offensive graduate assistant at Louisville and focused on coaching with tight ends midway through last season. Moore played collegiately at Oklahoma before joining the Cardinals' staff.
