After eight years at the helm of the Oregon program, head coach Jim Moore has continuously helped the Ducks reach new heights. There was no exception last year as Oregon finished as the national runner-up at the NCAA Tournament in the program’s first finals appearance.

The 2012 season was a banner year for Moore and the Ducks. UO finished the season with a 30-5 overall record and an 85.7 winning percentage, both of which are school-bests in the NCAA era. The mark boosted his record at Oregon to 166-86 (.627) while his 24-year mark as a head coach sits at 518-242 (.682).

The achievements garnered acclaim for Moore who was named 2012 National Coach of the Year by Volleyball Magazine. The award was the third national honor of his career after being named the 2007 Collegiate Volleyball Update National Coach of the Year in 2007 and the AVCA Division II National Coach of the Year in 1993 at Northern Michigan.

The writing was on the wall for the Ducks to make a deep run in the 2012 national tournament as Moore has made the team a staple in postseason play. During his eight-year tenure, Oregon has qualified for the NCAA Tournament six times, advancing to the third round in 2007 and 2008 while setting a new precedent for the squad in 2012. Overall, Moore owns a 10-6 postseason record at Oregon.

Prior to Moore’s takeover at Oregon, the Ducks had gone 14 years without finishing a season with a winning record. In his second year, Moore turned the tables and brought winning fortunes to the UO program and never looked back. The 2006 team won 17 matches (17-12), a mark the team has not dropped below in each of the successive six years under Moore, during which UO has accumulated five 20+ win seasons.

In addition to rebuilding programs and promoting team success, Moore has developed world-class talent at the individual level.

The most recent example is Oregon alum Alaina Bergsma being named AVCA National Player of the Year in 2012. The honor was the first for one of Moore’s student-athletes at the Division I level. Moore had previously coached two National Players of the year at the Division II level.

Bergsma was not the only student-athlete to earn national attention in 2012. Lauren Plum joined her as a First Team All-American while Liz Brenner was named All-America Second Team.

Nine  of UO’s 10 All-America honors have come during Moore’s tenure, thanks to the history-making careers of Alaina Bergsma (1st, 2012, 3rd-2011), Liz Brenner (2nd – 2012) Neticia Enesi (3rd-2008, 2009), Gorana Maricic (1st-2008, 2nd- 2007), Sonja Newcombe (2nd-2009) and Lauren Plum (1st - 2012).

Since the first season of Pac-10 play in 1986, Moore’s players have racked up 12 of the Ducks’ 19 All-Conference honors courtesy of Bergsma and Plum  (2011, 2012), Brenner (2012), Meyers (2010), Enesi (2008, 2009), Newcombe (2008, 2009) and Maricic (2007, 2008), and nine of its 15 honorable mentions from Haley Jacob (2012), Ariana Williams (2011, 2012), Bergsma (2010), Djordjevic (2009), Meyers (2007, 2009), Katie Swoboda (2008, 2007) and Newcombe (2006, 2007).

Likewise, he has mentored six of Oregon’s 12 all-time Pac-12 All-Freshman Team selections - Liz Brenner (2011), Plum (2010), Fischer (2009), Meyers (2007), Newcombe (2006) and Mira Djuric (2005) - and three of its seven honorable mentions - Djordjevic (2006), Enesi (2006) and Swoboda (2005).

The team’s emphasis on excellence to academics certainly extends to the classroom. In 2005-06 and ‘09-10, the team received the AVCA Academic Team Award after it combined for +3.30 GPA’s each academic year.

Fischer became the second Duck spiker to receive repeat Academic All-America acclaim but the first two named three times, joining the first team in 2011 and 2012 and the third team in 2010. Former pupils Bergsma and Kristen Bitter were third-team choices under Moore in 2012 and 2006, respectively. Fischer was a three-time Academic All-District first-team selection, and four other recent pupils picked up similar honors – Bergsma (1st -2012), Kellie Kawasaki (3rd-2010), Djordjevic (2nd - 2008, 3rd -2009) and Bitter (1st - 2006).

On Pac-10/12 All-Academic rolls Moore has seen 13 student-athletes to Pac-12 awards along with 24 honorable mentions.

Moore’s imprint on the program has resulted in Duck fans roaring in approval. UO stood 17th nationally in home crowd attendance in 2012 (2,102/match) welcoming eight of its top-25 biggest crowds in school history during the landmark season. Altogether in his Duck coaching career, his teams have played in front of 23 of the 29 biggest crowds in school history.

Prior to his arrival in Eugene, Moore served as head coach at Northern Michigan (1989-94, 2003-04), Kansas State (1994-97), Texas (1997-00) and Chico State (2001-02).

Collegiate volleyball pundits respect him as a master program rebuilder who is then able to take teams to the next level, warranted by the combined 143-228 record (.385) of four programs before his arrival (Northern Michigan, ‘89, ‘04, Kansas State and Chico State). After his arrival, those same teams went on to produce a 268-118 (.694) overall mark.

He has had to face many obstacles at each stop, beginning with his first season at Northern Michigan in 1989. Despite various recruiting challenges, his five-year tenure culminated in the Wildcats winning the 1993 NCAA II National Championship. Moore raised the perennial sub-.500 team to national dominance, highlighted by three consecutive trips to the NCAA Division II National Tournament quarterfinals, back-to-back appearances in the national championship match, and finally the 1993 National Championship after a phenomenal season record of 38-1.

In 1994, he then took over a Kansas State program that had gone 24-68 overall and 0-36 in league play prior to his arrival, and responded with three straight winning seasons and a 26-9 mark in 1996 (capped by the school’s first NCAA Tournament appearance).

Following those efforts, Moore guided the storied Texas program to three NCAA appearances, a Big 12 Conference Championship, one Big 12 Player of the Year honor, seven All-America selections and eight All-Big 12 selections.

After his Texas run, Moore guided Chico State to its first winning season in five years, and resurrected a program that had gone 15-75 the three years prior to his arrival to 16-13 and 18-8 records, and four All-CCHA selections.

Moore’s last stop before arriving in Eugene was an incredible two-year return to Northern Michigan that produced 50 wins in 58 matches.

Before his coaching career, the Long Beach, Calif., native played two years at San Bernardino Valley College, followed by a two-year stint at Long Beach State, where he earned his bachelor’s degree (1980) and later his master’s in health science. His first coaching position was at California’s Rim of the World High School, where his teams went 134-27 (.832) in five seasons, and his 1981 team captured the state championship. He then spent four years at Mayfair High (Calif.), and his last two teams went 26-2 and 28-2 respectively, before he moved to Northern Michigan.

Moore and his wife, Stacy Metro, have two children: Matthew (16) and Michael (14).
