Geno Auriemma will have a spot to fill on his staff for next season as assistant coach Marisa Moseley will become the new head coach at Boston University. Moseley played for the Terriers from 2000-04, helping the team to a 2003 America East championship and the program’s sole NCAA Tournament appearance.

“We are going to miss Marisa,” Auriemma said. “She has made a lasting impact on our program and in the hearts of our coaches and players. I will miss her personally as a coach and more as a friend. Congrats to Marisa and BU.”

Moseley joined the Huskies’ staff in 2009 after spending two years in the same position at Minnesota. She was responsible for coaching the bigs as well as creating workout plans, building scouting reports and working with marketing to create promotional videos for the program.

“I would also like to thank Geno Auriemma and my entire UConn family for their unwavering support through this process and for nine amazing years there,” Moseley said. “I know I would not be in this position without them.”

It will be the first time Auriemma’s coaching staff has changed since 2009 when Moseley joined the staff, replacing Jamelle Elliot after she took the head coaching job at Cincinnati. Elliot is now a free agent herself, so perhaps she’s a candidate to fill her old job on UConn’s staff, where she worked for Geno from 1998-2009.
