Moore joins Lady Crusader staff
New NGU women's basketball assistant coach Scott Moore

TIGERVILLE, SC—North Greenville University Director of Athletics Jan McDonald and head women’s basketball coach Jayne Arledge announce the hiring of Scott Moore as assistant women’s basketball coach.

Moore joins the Crusaders after spending the last two seasons at Western Carolina University, most recently as assistant coach and Director of Basketball Operations for the Lady Catamounts.

“I am grateful for the opportunity to work under Western Carolina University and North Greenville University legend Jayne Arledge as she is a wonderful coach in a highly successful program,” remarks Moore. “I expect to learn a lot from her and I’m here to help her make sure that the program stays competitive every year in the NCAA and the NCCAA.”

A 1996 graduate of Concordia University in River Forest, Ill., Moore was a four-year letterwinner for the Cougars in football, while also earning a varsity letter in baseball. During his final season at Concordia (1995-96), he volunteered as a student assistant for the women’s basketball team before parlaying that into a full-time position as women’s basketball assistant coach a year later.

In 1998, Moore made the transition to men’s basketball as an assistant coach at the University of Wisconsin-Baraboo/Sauk County for two years, while also being an assistant football coach at Baraboo High School. In the fall of 2000, he returned to the high school hard court and classroom at Montello High School. He worked as a high school English teacher and coached the girl’s basketball team at Montello High for four years.

Outside of coaching, Moore worked for two separate newspapers in Baraboo, WI, while coaching, serving as the Sports Editor of the now defunct Baraboo Sun from 1997 through 1998, then working for the Baraboo News Republic for a year in 1999.

Originally from Necedah, WI, Moore was married to his wife, Deb, in 1996 and they have two sons, Dylan who is six and Tyler, who is two.

Moore replaces Kevin Nicholls who resigned earlier this summer to accept a position at USC-Upstate.
