In six seasons as head coach at Alaska Anchorage, Tim Moser left a lasting impression on the UAA faithful and elevated the Seawolf program among the elite in NCAA Division II women's basketball.
With a 165-32 record, Moser had the highest percentage (.838) among active D-II women's coaches and the 7th-best among all divisions, following the end of the 2011-12 campaign. 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 were ranked in the WBCA/ESPN Top 25 Coaches' Poll for as many consecutive weeks (81). The Seawolves dropped no lower than No. 19 over a 5-year span (2007-12) - the only club in D-II to make that claim.
The 2011-12 Seawolves went 30-5 and won the GNAC title by two games, finishing No. 7 in the final national rankings. With Moser capturing his third GNAC Coach of the Year award, UAA became the first basketball program - women's or men's - to sweep the league's major honors, with Hanna Johansson (Player of the Year), Haley Holmstead (Newcomer) and Gritt Ryder (Freshman).
In 2008-09, Moser's squad won 31 games - a record for all UAA sports for the second straight year - and made it a 'three-peat' for the GNAC's Player- and Newcomer-of-the-Year awards, while Moser was voted the league's Coach of the Year for the second time in three years.
Moser also received the 2009 WBCA Div. II West Region Coach-of-the-Year honor as UAA captured a share of its first conference title in 20 years.
During Moser's tenure, the Seawolves were 97-7 at home, 14-6 in the NCAA Tournament and 9-3 against D-I opponents, including wins over Big East clubs Cincinnati and Syracuse.
As a D-II rookie coach in 2006-07, Moser was voted GNAC Coach of the Year after leading the Seawolves to the then-2nd-best record in program history (23-6), including the team's first NCAA Tournament victory in seven seasons. UAA recorded the 8th-biggest turnaround in D-II from 2005-06 to '06-07 as he took over a program that had averaged just 10.7 wins the previous six years.
A former Seawolf player, Moser returned to UAA in April 2006 from Otero (Colo.) Junior College, where he won 74 percent of his games and captured nine conference coach-of-the-year awards, coaching both the women's and men's teams. He coached the OJC men exclusively the final two seasons, after leading the men and women simultaneously the previous six years.
In six seasons with the Lady Rattlers, Moser compiled a 137-41 record and won five straight conference championships from 1998-02. With the men, he registered a 172-68 mark, winning four league titles.
Moser's student-athletes at OJC compiled an even more incredible record of success in the classroom, with the men ranking among the nation's top five teams in terms of grade-point average for five straight years, and the women holding a top-10 academic rank for six years in a row. During Moser's 14 combined seasons as head coach, the Rattlers produced 15 Academic All-Americans, 52 Academic All-Region performers, and all but one player graduated from the 2-year school.
Moser was the eighth head coach in UAA women's history.
