Grace Alum Matt Moore To Be New Tiger Boys Hoops Coach
After an extensive search, Athletic Director Matt Binkerd hired just the third boys basketball head coach at Warsaw Community High School.
The choice? Forty-year-old Grace College alum Matt Moore.
The announcement came Saturday and is subject to school board approval, which is expected to come at its next scheduled meeting a week from today, April 27.
“He’s the perfect fit for this position,” said Binkerd. “Matt was at the college level, but his dream job was to be a high school basketball coach. That really hit home with me, he’s been at the college level, but high school is where he wants to be at.”
Moore played high school basketball at Columbia City before going to Winona Lake to play college ball at Grace College under legendary head coach Jim Kessler. Upon graduating in 2002, Moore began his coach career under Kessler as an assistant coach and recruiting coordinator.
His ties to Grace continue today; he has twin brothers, Marcus and Scott, who are head women’s tennis coach and head men’s basketball coach, respectively. Scott took the reins when Kessler retired, and just completed his first season as head coach of the Lancers.
