Tom Moore to be named Quinnipiac men’s head basketball coach
POSTED 3/27/07 AT 11:54 P.M.
Tom Moore will be named the head coach of the Quinnipiac men’s basketball team, according to a source. The hiring of Moore, an assistant coach at UConn for the past 13 years, is expected to be officially announced later this week.
Moore comes to Quinnipiac after serving under head coach Jim Calhoun since the start of the 1994-95 season. In 2005, he was promoted to associate head coach. Moore also logged time on the recruiting trail where he built a reputation for having an excellent eye for talent. Since becoming a coach in Storrs, he helped turn the Huskies into a national powerhouse. UConn won the NCAA championship in 1999 and 2004 and has won eight Big East regular season titles.
This will not be Moore’s first time as a head coach. He held the position at Division III Worcester State from 1989-1994 before heading to UConn. The New Haven Register reported that St. Bonaventure and South Florida were interested in Moore, but that both were also considering other candidates.
Moore replaces Joe DeSantis, who led Quinnipiac for 11 seasons before being fired March 7.
