Quinnipiac men's basketball coach Tom Moore has signed a contract extension through the 2017-18 season, the university announced Thursday.
"Tom runs his entire program in a first-class manner, and we're delighted to extend his contract," Quinnipiac athletic director Jack McDonald said in a press release. "The shared commitment by Tom and Quinnipiac University has resulted in a program that is admired for its accomplishments on and off the court. We are greatly appreciative of everything he has done to make our basketball program so successful."
Through six seasons in Hamden, Moore, the former UConn assistant, has led the Bobcats to a 108-81 record. Moore reached 100 victories faster than any coach in program history with a victory over Central Connecticut Jan. 24, 2013.
Quinnipiac made three consecutive postseason appearances in 2010-12 (NIT, CIT, CBI). The Bobcats won 23 games and were the Northeast Conference regular season champions in 2010, losing the conference championship game to Robert Morris.
Quinnipiac, annually one of the top rebounding teams in the nation, has left the NEC and will play in the MAAC beginning in 2013-14. Last season, Quinnipiac was first in Division I in total rebounding and offensive rebounding, and second in rebounding margin.
"I am thrilled to sign another five-year contract extension to remain here at Quinnipiac University," Moore said. "I have received incredible support from our entire administration since the first day I arrived. President John Lahey, Vice President Mark Thompson, and director of Athletics Jack McDonald have provided our program and student-athletes everything we have needed to be successful both on the court and in the classroom. I am both inspired and energized by this commitment to me as we transition into the MAAC conference in the years ahead."Copyright © 2015, The Baltimore Sun
