Veteran coach Moore named to interim Colby post

Stan Moore has been named interim head coach of Colby College.

A veteran of more than 25 years as a Division I coach at Providence, Colgate, Union and Brown, the Colby job is Moore’s third as a head coach at the NCAA level. He coached Union from 1996 to 1998 and was the interim coach at Colgate in the 2003-04 season.

Moore takes over the Mules from Jim Tortorella, who left Colby over the summer to become associate head coach at New Hampshire.

“We are very fortunate to have someone of Stan’s experience and knowledge right in our backyard,” said Colby athletic director Marcella Zalot. “He can step in on day one and be able to take command of all aspects of running a program at a high level.”

Moore was an assistant coach for Kents Hill School last year in Belgrade, Maine.
