Storrs, CT (Sports Network) - Connecticut men's basketball coach Kevin Ollie has announced the promotion of Ricky Moore to permanent assistant coach for the 2013-14 season.

Moore served as the assistant director of basketball administration in 2012-13, his first year with the team, after spending two seasons as an assistant coach at Dartmouth.

Moore was a member of the 1999 UConn national championship team and went on to play 11 years professionally in five different countries, while also spending time in the NBA Developmental League.

"I'm really excited to add Ricky to our coaching staff," Ollie said. "When Ricky was here as a player, he epitomized what UConn stands for and I know he will do the same thing as a coach."
