“Teri is a tremendous basketball coach,” Joseph said. “She has had an impact on this program from day one. We are very fortunate to have her at Georgia Tech and without question our student-athletes have made huge strides on and off the floor due to her presence. I am very excited to be able to offer Teri the title of associate head coach. It is well deserved.”
Moren, who has worked primarily with the post players, will now oversee the skill development of the perimeter players during the upcoming season. She will also oversee opponent scouting and will continue to provide Coach Joseph with in-game feedback and adjustments.
“I am so excited and grateful for the opportunity that Coach Joseph and Georgia Tech has given me,” Moren said. “It has been a true privilege to work at Tech the last two years.
“I look forward to the challenges of continuing to help build our women’s basketball program into one of the finest in the country.”
In her two seasons at Tech, the Yellow Jackets have earned back-to-back 20-win seasons and have made two straight NCAA Tournament appearances. Moren helped guide Sasha Goodlett, a 6-5 center, to one of the best freshman seasons by a post player in school history.
Prior to joining the women’s basketball program at Georgia Tech, Moren served as the head coach of the University of Indianapolis. Moren compiled a 130-73 record, becoming the fastest women’s coach in program history to reach 100 wins. Moren put together five consecutive winning seasons including three-straight seasons of 20-plus wins. Her teams reached three-consecutive Great Lakes Valley Conference tournament finals and three-consecutive NCAA Division II tournaments.
The 2003 NCAA Division II Russell Athletic/WBCA Region 4 Coach of the Year and the 2003 GLVC Coach of the Year led her 2002-03 squad to a school-record 29 wins and the GLVC regular season and tournament championships.
Prior to her appointment at Indianapolis, Moren served as an assistant women’s basketball coach at Northwestern University for the 1999-00 season, where she helped the Wildcats reach the quarterfinals of the Big Ten tournament as only the second No. 10 seed in conference history to win a first-round game.
A 1992 graduate of Purdue University, Moren earned her first collegiate coaching job at Butler University in 1993. In her six seasons as the team’s recruiting coordinator, Moren was instrumental in recruiting and signing nine Indiana All-Stars. During her tenure, Moren was influential in helping the Bulldogs to a 114-56 record (.671), earning their first-ever NCAA Tournament berth in 1996 by winning the Midwestern Collegiate Conference Tournament.
Moren was a four-year letterwinner and two-year starter for the Boilermakers. She teamed with Joseph to lead Purdue to the 1991 Big Ten Championship. Moren was awarded the Ruth Jones Memorial Award for team leadership and the Red Mackey Award for Academic and Athletic Excellence in `91. Moren is currently 15th all-time in assists.
