Women’s basketball coach at Beaver takes new position

MONACA, Pa. -- Penn State Beaver owns one United States Collegiate Athletic Association National Championship. And Tim Moore coached the 2015 women’s basketball team that captured it. So it’s no surprise that other colleges and universities would vie for Moore’s services.

On Monday, Carlow University announced that Moore will become a Celtic and coach the women’s basketball team beginning this season.

Carlow is a member of the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics and competes as an independent in the USCAA.

"The Penn State Beaver Athletics Department would like to thank Coach Moore for his nine years of service with the women's basketball program,” said Beaver Athletic Director Andy Kirschner. “Coach Moore took over a very successful program and made it even better. He has touched and molded numerous lives within the Penn State Family. We wish him luck at Carlow University."

In his nine years at Beaver, Moore led the women’s basketball team to four Penn State University Athletic Conference titles and was named USCAA Division II Coach of the Year once.

The search for Moore’s replacement has already begun. The women begin the season on Nov. 3 in the Villa Maria Tournament.
