Indiana University athletic director Scott Dolson announced Gabby Moore as the new Indiana women’s tennis head coach Monday, according to an Indiana Athletics release. 

“We are pleased to welcome Gabby to our Hoosier family and excited about the future of our women’s tennis program,” Dolson said in the release. 

Moore has been the women’s tennis head coach at McNeese State University for the past two seasons. After inheriting a team that won a combined six matches in the previous three seasons, Moore finished her two-year tenure with a combined 35-10 record. 

In the 2023-24 season, McNeese State secured a school record of 20 wins, going 20-4 overall and reaching the Southland Conference Tournament championship match. Five of Moore’s players earned postseason All-Southern Conference honors, with Anastasija Adeikyte earning SLC Freshman of the Year and Arina Gamretkaia winning SLC Newcomer of the Year. 

Before her time at McNeese State, Moore spent six seasons at Jackson State University, five in which she held the position of head coach for the men’s and women’s tennis teams. During her final two seasons from 2021-22, the women’s team finished a combined 26-11 overall and 15-1 in the Southwestern Athletic Conference, highlighted by a SWAC regular season championship both years and a postseason SWAC title in 2022. 

“We had an outstanding pool of candidates during our coaching search,” Dolson said in the release. “Gabby’s track record of success at McNeese and Jackson State immediately jumped out on paper.” 

Moore will replace former head coach Ramiro Azcui, who left Indiana after 32 years with the program, and the last eight as the head coach. In the 2023-24 season, the Hoosiers finished 6-20 overall and 0-11 in the Big Ten. 

“[Moore] has a vision for returning IU Women’s Tennis to a level of Big Ten and national success that it has previously enjoyed,” Dolson said in the release. “This is a great day for IU Women’s Tennis.”
