TERRE HAUTE, Ind. -- Indiana State University Director of Athletics Ron Prettyman announced Friday that Georgia Tech Associate Head Coach Teri Moren has been named the new head women's basketball coach at Indiana State. Moren replaces Jim Wiedie, who resigned after 10 seasons at the helm of the Sycamore program.
"It is with great pride and anticipation that I am making the announcement of the appointment of Teri Moren as our new head women's basketball coach at Indiana State," Prettyman said. "Coach Moren has impeccable qualifications and experience and will do an outstanding job for us. Coach Moren is an outstanding basketball coach and a terrific person. She will be a great influence on the young ladies in our program and assist them as they strive to achieve their goals. I urge the Wabash Valley and the Terre Haute community to join me in welcoming Coach Moren to the Sycamore family."
"I'm very excited and thrilled to become part of the Sycamore family," Moren said. "We have many things to look forward to in this program, and our work starts today. I'm honored and humbled to lead the program."
Moren, a Seymour, Ind., native, recently completed her third season as associate head coach at Georgia Tech, where the Yellow Jackets have made three NCAA Tournament appearances and enjoyed three consecutive 20-win seasons.
Moren previously served as head coach at the University of Indianapolis for seven seasons, where she compiled a 130-73 record. The 2003 WBCA Region 4 Coach of the Year, her teams made appearances in three consecutive NCAA Division II Tournaments and earned the Great Lakes Valley Conference regular-season and tournament titles in 2002-03. Moren was also an assistant coach at Northwestern in 1999-2000 and has additional assistant coaching experience for six years at Butler.
A 1992 graduate of Purdue University with a bachelor's degree in therapeutic recreation, Moren lettered four years in basketball and was a two-year starter for the Boilermakers. Her Purdue squad also earned the 1991 Big Ten Championship in Moren's junior season.
