Grace College’s athletic department is pleased to announce the hiring of Marcus Moore starting this fall.
Moore will serve in a new position on staff as the Athletics Admissions Recruiting Coordinator. In this new strategic role, he will assist all 17 varsity programs in recruitment. Additionally, he will have a focus on the new initiative for the growth of junior varsity and club sports on Grace’s campus.
“Grace is a special place and has had a big role in my life over the past two decades. I look forward to the challenges of this new position, and I’m eager to see a large number of future Grace College athletes experience our growing campus,” Moore said. “I’m excited to be able to work for a staff and administration that I look up to so much and to come work in an environment that gets me excited every day.”
Moore will aid in all aspects of recruiting prospective student-athletes, including facilitating campus visits, coordinating tours and scheduling meetings with coaches and professors.
Additionally, he will continue in his role as the head coach for Grace’s women’s tennis program, which he has done since 2017.
“We are very excited to have Marcus lead in this strategic role on our campus,” said Grace Director of Athletics Chad Briscoe. “His ability to recruit at a high level will be a tremendous complement to our entire coaching staff. His background as a Lancer alum and current head coach will also further help the growth and success of all our athletic programs.”
Moore was a star basketball player from Grace from 2004-08. He was an NAIA and NCCAA All-American who graduated as the No. 2 all-time leading scorer in Grace’s history with 2,351 points.
