ANCHORAGE – After discussions with UAA Athletic Director Dr. Steve Cobb, Tim Moser has resigned his position as University of Alaska Anchorage women’s basketball head coach, effective immediately.
“Coach Moser has issued a letter of resignation that I have accepted,” Dr. Cobb said. "We are grateful for his efforts in leading the UAA women’s basketball program to an elite national status.”
With a 165-32 record, Moser holds with the highest winning percentage (.838) among active D-II women’s coaches and the 7th-best among all NCAA divisions. His Seawolf squads advanced to at least the second round of the NCAA Tournament in each of his seasons, including consecutive Final Four appearances in 2008 and 2009, and another NCAA Elite Eight berth in 2012. Under his guidance, the Seawolves earned three NCAA West Region titles, two GNAC regular-season crowns, two GNAC Tournament titles, three 30-win seasons and four Carrs/Safeway Great Alaska Shootout championships.
In Moser’s tenure, only two other D-II women’s programs posted as many victories as the Seawolves and none have been ranked in the WBCA/ESPN Top 25 Coaches’ Poll for as many consecutive weeks, a current streak of 81.
The 2011-12 Seawolves went 30-5 and won the GNAC title by two games, finishing No. 7 in the final national rankings.
Dr. Cobb indicated that a search for a new head coach will begin immediately.
