Northwestern head volleyball coach Shane Davis announced the hiring of Kevin Moore as an assistant on Jan. 13, 2016. Like Davis, Moore comes to Northwestern from Loyola (Chicago), where he was the associate head coach of the women’s program in 2015.
Prior to his stint at Loyola, Moore served as the head coach for the men’s program at Juniata, his alma mater, from 2011-2014. The Eagles enjoyed success under Moore’s guidance, posting an 86-37 record. He coached five AVCA D-III All-Americans, eight all-conference selections and two conference freshman of the year winners during his stint at the Huntingdon, Pa. school. Juniata advanced to the quarterfinals of the NCAA tournament in 2014.
During his tenure, Juniata transitioned from the Eastern Intercollegiate Volleyball Association (EIVA) to the Continental Volleyball Conference (CVC) in 2012. Moore was named the EIVA coach of the year in 2011 and the CVC coach of the year in 2014.
Before his time at Juniata, Moore was an assistant at George Mason for two years from 2009-10 and the head coach at Gates-Chili High School in Rochester, N.Y. from 2004-08.
Moore has been an active contributor to the USA Volleyball High Performance program for almost nine years and has done a variety of things, including scouting and film review for the men’s national team in preparation for the 2011 World League in Poland.
Moore won the 1998 national championship during his playing days at Juniata and graduated from the school in 2002 with a degree in education and three certifications.
