East Carolina alumnus John Moseley has been named Director of Basketball Operations at ECU announced Pirate head coach Mack McCarthy. Moseley began his career in collegiate basketball as a student manager for the Pirates while pursuing his undergraduate and postgraduate degrees.
“I believe in the direction that the program is heading under Coach Mack,” said Moseley. “I’m looking forward to working with him and all the assistants as they continue to build Pirate basketball. It’s always been a goal of mine to get back and help the program succeed.”
Along with taking part in the daily operations of the men's basketball office, Moseley’s primary responsibilities at East Carolina include team travel arrangements, film exchange and the coordination of summer camps.
“We just added a very nice piece of our basketball program puzzle,” McCarthy said. “John is a talented, passionate Pirate. He knows everyone in eastern North Carolina and everyone involved in basketball in the state. He brings a lot of skills and varied experiences to an already talented returning staff. I am very pleased to have John on board with ECU basketball.”
A native of Warrenton, N.C., Moseley joins the basketball staff from Winston-Salem State where he served as an administrative assistant during 2007-08. Prior to his most recent position, Moseley served one year as an assistant coach at Wright State under coach Brad Brownell and helped the Raiders to the Horizon League tournament championship and share of the regular-season title. Before heading to Wright State, he served two years as boy’s basketball coach at Warren County (N.C.) High School where he led the Eagles to the 2005 Class 2A state championship game in his initial campaign. He was also an assistant coach at Delaware during the 2001-02 and 2002-03 seasons.
“John is an extremely hard-working and dedicated young coach who will bring a great deal of energy and enthusiasm to his job every day,” said Brownell. “He has a tremendous amount of experience at the Division I level and will truly be an asset to Coach McCarthy and his staff at East Carolina.”
After earning his bachelor’s degree in 1998, Moseley obtained a master’s degree the following year and then worked one year as an academic coordinator in the ECU Athletics Department.
