He only spent a year as a Duck, but Mike Moser is coming back to Eugene. This time he’ll be with the Oregon women’s basketball team as an assistant coach.
Since August 2019, Moser has worked in player development and analytics for the NBA’s Dallas Mavericks. He’s also spent time as an international scouting consultant and personal basketball trainer.
“We are thrilled to bring Mike back to Eugene as part of our coaching staff,” said head coach Kelly Graves on GoDucks.com. “Mike has a terrific basketball mind and is a great player development coach who will help our student-athletes grow and improve in every aspect of their game. His experience working in the NBA with scouting and analytics will be incredibly valuable, and he is more than ready to take this step in his coaching career.”
The Portland native spent the 2013-14 season on the UO men’s basketball team after three years with UNLV (2010-13). With the Ducks, he started all 34 games — averaging 13.2 points and 7.7 rebounds per game — and led the team to the second round of the NCAA Tournament.
“Being from Oregon and having played for the Ducks, the University of Oregon is truly a special place,” said Moser. “My family and I are thrilled to have the opportunity to work with such an outstanding program. I believe in Coach Graves’ vision, and the values he and his staff have established that have made Oregon women’s basketball so successful. I look forward to meeting the team, and I know that together we are going to build cohesion and grow off of last season’s success.”
Moser joins Jackie Nared Hairston — who was hired Friday — as the new assistants on the Graves’ coaching staff with longtime assistant Jodie Berry.
After his collegiate career, Moser had multiple NBA Summer League and training camp appearances. He then played five years overseas, including stops in Lithuania, Israel, Kosovo, Qatar, Finland, and France.
Back in 2017, Moser earned the Eurobasket.com all-Kosovo League forward of the year and the Kosovo Basketball SuperLeague Finals MVP honor.
