Per League and team rules, terms are not disclosed. Moss joins Rob Keefe (head coach) and Chris Thompson (offensive coordinator & director of football operations) on the Albany AFL coaching staff.

Les was part of the coaching staff for four ArenaBowl Championship teams (1990, 1998, 2000 and 2011). Most recently, he served as the head coach of the Jacksonville Sharks from 2010 – 2016 posting a 77-54 overall record during that time period.
