STORRS - Former Quinnipiac coach Tom Moore is returning as an assistant coach at UConn, where he spent 13 years on Hall of Fame coach Jim Calhoun's staff.

Moore was an assistant last year under Dan Hurley at Rhode Island and becomes the first coach to join Hurley's staff at UConn. Hurley was hired by UConn last week to replace Kevin Ollie after the school's second straight losing season and amid an NCAA investigation.

Moore went 162-146 in 10 seasons at Quinnipiac before being fired at the end of the 2016-17 season.

Hurley said Thursday that he believes Moore's ties to Amateur Athletic Union programs in the Northeast will be a valuable recruiting asset.

UConn has released all three of the players recruited by Ollie for the 2018-19 season from their commitments to the school.
