Episode Info:   It is hard to believe it is already our 10th episode and 9th neighbor interview. It was my complete honor to interview the Legendary Coach, Wes Moore.    Coach Wes Moore was born and raised in Dallas, Texas. His mom raised him and his two older sisters.  He could be found playing whatever sport was in season until it got dark outside.  Then college brought him to the state of Tennessee where he earned his Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees.  He is married to Linda, a former Miss North Carolina contestant and absolutely the sweetest woman you would ever want to meet.   Coach Moore was named the 4th Head Coach in the program history of the North Carolina State University, Women’s Basketball team on April 4th, 2013.  In his seven years coaching the Wolfpack women, he has achieved numerous accolades including a 73% winning record, 4 NCAA tournament appearances, and most recently Coach Moore led the NC State Wolfpack to become the ACC Tournament Title Champs.  This was the program’s first conference tournament championship in 29 years.  Prior to his time at NC State, Coach Moore racked up more stats as a coach in South Carolina and Tennessee.   Coach Moore has been a head coach for 31 years and 12 of those years received “Coach of the Year” honors including the 2019 Associated Press National Coach of the Year Runner-Up. He was the only coach in NCAA history, to take three different teams to a national tournament, at each NCAA level…Division I, Division II, and Division III. I truly appreciated the conversation and hated to see it come to an end.  Coach Moore is such an inspiration. He is a powerful, articulate, and dynamic speaker. He taught me so much about him, his profession, and life in general.   We are delighted to have them as part of the 12 Oaks family for the past 7 years and hopefully many more to come.   In This Episode: [01:34] Welcome Coach Wes Moore our 9th “P” in the pod[cast].  [01:45] Coach Moore was named as the 4th Head Coach in program history, of the North Carolina State University, Women’s Basketball team, on April 4th, 2013.  [02:42] Most recently, Coach Moore led the NC State Wolfpack Women, to the 2020, ACC Tournament Title.
