He was named to the NFL Pro Bowl on four occasions and NFL All-Pro three times. In October 2007, Herman Moore was among 124 modern-era players, coaches and contributors on the preliminary list of nominees for the Pro Football Hall of Fame’s Class of 2008. Moore was one of only seven other first-year eligible candidates to make the list.

Moderated by Lauren Clayborne, adjunct professor of Sport and Entertainment Management in the Mike Ilitch School of Business, The Big Business of Sport and Entertainment will help students gain valuable skills with regard to leadership in the Sport and Entertainment business and entrepreneurial space.
