After being introduced as East Carolina University head women's basketball coach Tuesday, Wes Moore announced his intention to remain in the same position at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga Thursday afternoon.
Moore was initially tabbed as the 10th head coach in the program's history and replaced Sharon Baldwin-Tener, who accepted the head coaching position at Georgia State earlier this month.
Moore has been the head coach at UTC for the past 12 seasons.
Statement from ECU Director of Athletics Terry Holland:
"I am disappointed that Coach Moore decided to return to Chattanooga. He put 12 years into making a championship program, and leaving that proved more difficult than he possibly could have imagined. I have already been in contact with Chancellor Ballard and members of the Board of Trustees regarding the resumption of the coaching search. I am confident that we will find the right coach for this program."
