Marisa Moseley completed her third season as a coach on the University of Connecticut women's basketball staff.
Moseley will work primarily with the post players at Connecticut and spent the 2007-08 and 2008-09 seasons as an assistant coach on the women's basketball staff at the University of Minnesota. She will also assist in all facets of recruiting and player development.
"Marisa is an outstanding young coach who will be a perfect fit here at UConn," UConn head coach Geno Auriemma said. "She has outstanding people skills and her experiences at Minnesota have prepared her well for the challenges she will face at Connecticut. Marisa will be a terrific coach on the floor as well as an excellent recruiter. I'm thrilled to have her on our staff and our players will be as well."
During her tenure at Minnesota, Moseley helped lead the Golden Gophers to a pair of NCAA Tournament appearances (2008, 2009) while posting an overall record of 40-24 over her two seasons and had two post players under her tutelage earn All-Big Ten status.
Also, while serving in her role as academic liaison, a total of 11 Minnesota women's basketball players earned selection to the Big Ten Academic Honor Roll.
Moseley spent the 2006-07 season at the University of Denver where she helped lead the Pioneers to a 20-11 record, their first 20-plus win campaign since 2000-01. Her responsibilities included assisting with the Pioneers' recruiting and team travel, as well as monitoring the players' academic progress.
In addition to her coaching duties, Moseley was a member of Denver's Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Committee. The committee was instrumental in the establishment of a new associate athletic director position overseeing diversity and community relations.
Prior to joining the staff at Denver, Moseley worked a one-year stint as a production assistant at ESPN in Bristol, Conn., where she served as a creative contributor to shows such as SportsCenter, ESPNews and ABC NewsOne.
A 2004 graduate of Boston University with a degree in sociology, Moseley completed her four-year (2000-04) playing career as the program's third-leading shot blocker totaling 114 blocks.
The defensive specialist earned All-America East Conference Third Team honors in 2002-03 after leading BU in both steals and blocked shots. Moseley also helped the Terriers to their first-ever appearance in the NCAA Tournament in 2003 and was voted the defensive player of the year by her teammates. Moseley was a four-year member of the America East Honor Roll and served as a team captain in both her junior and senior seasons.
Moseley has also served as a skills instructor at the basketball camps at Minnesota, BU, Connecticut, Holy Cross and Syracuse.
