Cliff Moore named assistant coach at Edinboro



Edinboro University Director of Athletics Bruce Baumgartner has announced the appointment of former University of Iowa wrestling great Cliff Moore as assistant wrestling coach. Moore replaces Lou Rosselli, who accepted a similar position at Ohio State earlier this summer.

Moore worked the past two years with the Iowa program. After serving as the strength and conditioning coach in 2004-05, he was an administrative assistant a year ago.

Edinboro head coach Tim Flynn is thrilled to have his staff completed, and excited with what Moore will bring to the Fighting Scots. "We are all excited to have Cliff on board," related Flynn. "He is exactly what you want in an assistant coach. He is an excellent role model for our kids. His work ethic is unbelievable, and obviously, he is a great wrestler! Cliff has what all of our kids want....an NCAA Championship! Cliff also has experience in the office to help with our many fundraisers, recruiting and administratively! We could not be more pleased!"

After winning three state titles as a prepster at Hempstead (IA) High School, Moore joined the Iowa wrestling program in 1999. Over the next five years, he would win one national title and earn All-American status three times, in addition to claiming two Big Ten titles. The national championship came while competing at 141 lbs. as a senior in 2003-04. That capped a year in which he finished 33-2 after defeating Nebraska's Matt Murray, 5-2, in the national title match. He recorded a team-leading six pins and was presented the Mike Howard Award as Iowa's most valuable wrestler. Moore ended his career with twenty straight wins, including his second Big Ten title thanks to a 6-2 win over Doug Withstandley.

Moore posted a 109-24 career record. After redshirting in 1999-2000, he was 17-3 in 2000-01 while competing at 133 lbs. In 2001-02, he took over as the starter at 133 lbs. and proceeded to earn All-American honors with a sixth place finish at Nationals. Moore ended the year with a 28-10 record, placing fifth at the Big Ten Championships. He won three tournament titles, including the Midlands Championships.

Moore captured Big Ten titles as a junior and senior. He gained another sixth place finish and All-American honors at Nationals in 2002-03, once again competing at 133 lbs. While ending the season with a 31-9 record, he captured his first Big Ten title with a 3-1 win over Minnesota's Ryan Lewis in sudden victory. He was named the John and Dorothy Sill Award winner as Iowa's most dedicated wrestler.

A native of Dubuque, Iowa, Moore graduated from Iowa with a bachelor's degree in Business Administration, with a concentration in Marketing, in 2004. He was named a wrestling Academic All-American in 2003.
