UNC women's basketball hires Carrie Moore as assistant coach

Courtney Banghart hired
Courtney Banghart, the newly hired UNC women's basketball head coach, spoke at a small press conference in Carmichael Arena about her hopes for the program on May 1, 2019.

The North Carolina women's basketball team hired Carrie Moore as assistant coach and recruiting coordinator, the UNC athletic department announced in a statement Tuesday. Moore worked alongside new UNC head coach Courtney Banghart while both were at Princeton.

“I’m extremely grateful for this incredible opportunity to continue working alongside a proven winner in Courtney (Banghart) at one of the best institutions in the country,” Moore said in the statement.

Before working as an assistant coach at Creighton University from 2010-2015, Moore spent two seasons as Princeton University's director of basketball operations. Moore then returned to Princeton as an assistant coach and helped the Tigers reach the NCAA Tournament in each of the last two seasons.

“I’m so thrilled to welcome Carrie Moore to the Carolina Family,” Banghart said. “She is one of the most respected coaches, recruiters, teachers, and people in this business. She has been a critical teammate with all parts of the Princeton program, and brings talent, compassion, enthusiasm, hard work, knowledge, and authentic care for others to her every day. She is a difference maker and simply put, I’m better when having her by my side.”

Moore is the first member of Banghart's staff, coming after former head coach Sylvia Hatchell resigned following an investigation that determined she used racially insensitive comments and pressured players to play injured.

Last year, the Tar Heels went 18-15 in the regular season and made the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 2015.
