A 22-year coaching veteran, Richard Moore is in his third season on head coach Mike Bozeman's staff and works with the team's post players. In 2009-10, Moore mentored Atlantic 10 All-Rookie Team forward Brooke Wilson and groomed sophomore center Sara Mostafa into one of the league's Top 10 rebounders and Top 30 scorers.
In his first season at GW, Moore coached First Team All-Atlantic 10 selection Jessica Adair, who was selected in the 2009 WNBA Draft and played for the Minnesota Lynx in 2010.
Moore spent three seasons as assistant and head post-graduate men's basketball coach at Massanutten Military Academy in Woodstock, VA, prior to joining Bozeman at GW. He handled basketball operations, player recruitment, development and placement, scheduling and film exchange while working with the Colonels' post-graduate team.
Most notably, Moore spent nine seasons as associate women's basketball coach at Belmont Abbey College, an NCAA Division II program in Belmont, NC, from 1992-2001. The Crusaders captured five Carolinas-Virginia Athletics Conference titles and participated in four consecutive NCAA Tournaments during Moore's tenure. Moore handled defensive instruction, pre- and post-season workouts and assisted in recruiting while at Belmont Abbey.
Moore has also held assistant coaching positions at Quail Hollow Middle School (2001-05) and Garinger High School (1989-91) in Charlotte, NC. He has worked numerous camps at Division I institutions, including Virginia, North Carolina, Georgia Tech and Virginia Commonwealth.
Moore received a bachelor's degree in communication from Fairleigh Dickinson University in 1989. Moore, who teamed with Bozeman to help the Knights to an ECAC Metro title and NCAA Tournament appearance in 1988, was a volunteer assistant coach at FDU as a senior.
