A native of Costa Mesa, California, Mossberg spent over a decade in various rolls at Ole Miss prior to making the move to Buffalo. He started as a student-athlete, playing baseball for the Rebels from 2000-03 before returning as the Director of Baseball Operations in 2006. After serving as an administrator and coach for five seasons, Mossberg made the transition to Major Gifts Officer for Ole Miss Athletics Foundation where he brought in several major gifts as part of the Forward Together campaign. During his time on the diamond as an assistant coach, Mossberg was an integral part of the success of the Rebels which garnered several NCAA berths resulting in two regionals, two super regionals and a 2009 SEC Championship.
