LOGAN, Utah - Jimmy Moore, who began his professional association with Utah State University as an assistant basketball coach nearly three decades ago, has returned to the athletics department as its compliance director and officially began his duties on Monday, June 27.
Moore will oversee financial aid for all of USU's student-athletes, and monitor and ensure institutional compliance with NCAA rules. He will provide interpretations and education of NCAA and Western Athletic Conference rules to both student-athletes and coaches, and direct the student-athlete mentoring program.
"Jimmy is a long-time loyal Aggie serving this university for over two decades," said Director of Athletics Scott Barnes. "His wealth of experience as both a former student-athlete and assistant coach, along with being a successful administrator makes Jimmy a great addition to our team."
Moore began his affiliation with Utah State as a student-athlete on the men's basketball team from 1972-75, helping the Aggies to the 1975 NCAA Tournament. He finished his career with 1,164 points and 652 rebounds and still ranks 24th all-time in school history in scoring and 15th all-time in rebounding. In 2005, Moore was one of 16 Aggie greats named to USU's All-Century basketball team.
Following his collegiate career, Moore spent two years in the NBA with the Seattle SuperSonics and 10 years playing oversees before returning to Logan as an assistant basketball coach for Rod Tueller in 1987. Moore then spent four seasons (1989-92) on Kohn Smith's staff before beginning his administrative career on campus.
From 1992 to 2001, Moore served as the Associate Director of Admissions for Utah State University before being promoted to the Director of Admissions and Scholarships, a capacity he served in for four years. He then spent one year as the Director of Outreach for Student-Services followed by four years as the Student Involvement Officer. For the past year, Moore was an associate director within the Access and Diversity Center.
"This is an exciting time to return to the athletics department," said Moore. "The success the department and athletic teams have had over the years really demonstrates the hard work of everyone involved."
A native of Leakesville, Miss., Moore graduated from Utah State with a bachelor's degree in physical education and a master's degree in education. He and his wife Debra are the parents of two sons, Grayson (18) and Jalen (15).
