“Marisa has become a rising superstar in the coaching ranks,” said Golden Gopher head coach Pam Borton. ”We will miss Marisa but we are happy for this opportunity for her to return home. She is a young and talented coach with an extraordinary work ethic and who relates well with the players. We are disappointed to lose her talent and energy, but we wish her all the best and are happy for her.”
Moseley was a part of Borton’s coaching staff which directed the Gophers to a pair of 20-win seasons with NCAA Tournament appearances in the last two seasons. She worked with the post players and assisted with recruiting duties while also serving as the team’s academic liaison.
“Marisa is an outstanding young coach who will be a perfect fit here at UConn,” UConn head coach Geno Auriemma said. “She has outstanding people skills and her experiences at Minnesota have prepared her well for the challenges she will face at Connecticut. Marisa will be a terrific coach on the floor as well as an excellent recruiter. I'm thrilled to have her on our staff and our players will be as well.”
