ATLANTA – Teri Moren, head coach at the University of Indianapolis for the past seven years, has been named an assistant coach for the Georgia Tech women’s basketball program, head coach MaChelle Joseph announced Tuesday.
“I am so excited for Georgia Tech, our women’s basketball program, our players, and our staff to have someone of Teri’s caliber and experience joining our program,” said Joseph. “Her experience as a head coach the past seven years at the University of Indianapolis makes her a very valuable asset to the continued growth and development of our program.
“With the addition of Teri, we now have three members on our staff with head coaching experience. Associate head coach Mark Simons spent 17 years at the helm of multiple programs and our administrative coordinator Tandy Bradford led Kentucky Wesleyan for three years,” added Joseph.
As the Indianapolis head coach, 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.
“I am very thrilled to be part of the Georgia Tech family and working in the Atlantic Coast Conference,” said Moren. “I am looking forward to the challenge of helping Coach Joseph work towards a championship. I have had some tremendous experience working at various programs and hope to utilize this experience in my new role at Georgia Tech.”
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.
“Anytime you can have that kind of experience on your staff you know your players are going to develop at a high level,” stated Joseph. “Her ability to teach, recruit, and scout will give our players and program a distinct advantage as we continue to grow and build this program into a national power.”
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.
A four-year letterwinner and two-year starter for the Boilermakers, Moren teamed with Joseph to lead Purdue to the 1991 Big Ten Championship. She 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.
