Anne Moore Resigns as Wyoming Soccer Coach

Nov. 15, 2007

LARAMIE, Wyo. -

University of Wyoming Athletics Director Tom Burman announced Thursday that head women's soccer coach Anne Moore has decided to resign her position at the University of Wyoming.

Moore and her husband Curt have two young sons, and her decision to resign grew out of a desire to spend more time with her family.

"I want to thank Anne for her nine years of service to the University and the Athletics Department," said Burman. "She has touched the lives of many young women, and she has been an asset to our department. We wish her and her family all the best in the future."

Moore recently completed her ninth season as head coach at Wyoming. During her tenure from 1999 to 2007, she posted a 63-91-17 (.418) overall record and a 19-34-4 (.368) conference record in the Mountain West Conference. This past season, Wyoming was 9-10 (.474) overall and was 4-3 (.571) in the MWC, tying for third place. Her teams finished in the top half of the conference three of her nine seasons. The Cowgirls were unable to win a Mountain West Conference Tournament game during that time.

Burman said that a national search would begin immediately for a new head coach but that no specific timetable for filling the position would be established.

Current Associate Head Coach Kim Whisenant will manage the UW women's soccer program in the interim until a new head coach is named.
