Noted for his recruiting prowess, Rob Moxley enters his third season as a member of the NC State basketball staff. The 2013-14 season marks the 15th year that Moxley and associate head coach Bobby Lutz have worked together.
Moxley, born in Baltimore, Md., came to NC State after serving as an assistant coach at Middle Tennessee for the 2010-11 season. Prior to his one-year stint at MTSU, he served as Lutz's associate head coach at Charlotte for five seasons and was with the program 12 years overall. He served as an assistant coach for seven years (1999-2005) before accepting an assistant coaching position at Maryland in 2005-06. He returned to Charlotte after one season to take over as associate head coach.
Moxley proved his ability to recruit by helping the Wolfpack land a top 10 recruiting class of Tyler Lewis, Rodney Purvis and T.J. Warren, all of whom were McDonald's All-Americans.
Recently, Recruitdirt.com named him the top assistant coach in the ACC. In 2008, HoopScooponline.com ranked Moxley among the nation's top 100 assistant coaches. In 2007, Rivals.com ranked him as one of the top 25 recruiters in the country and Basketball Times placed him 10th in its top 16 "Friends of Junior Colleges".
During his time at Charlotte, Moxley helped land four top 20 recruiting classes for the 49ers and was instrumental in signing 2001 ESPN.com National Freshman of the Year Rodney White and 2003 All-Conference USA choice Demon Brown. He helped attract Maryland's 18th-ranked 2006 recruiting class (Rivals.com) and recruited 2010 ACC Player of the Year and 2010 NBA first round draft pick Greivis Vasquez.
Moxley began as an assistant under Lutz at Pfeiffer University in 1993. They worked together for two years before moving together to Gardner-Webb in 1995. When Lutz was offered an assistant position with the 49ers for 1995-96, Moxley remained at Gardner-Webb. He returned to Pfeiffer for two years, 1996-98, as an assistant to head coach Dave Davis.
A 1994 graduate of Pfeiffer, Moxley and his wife Jennifer have four children: Joey, Emily, Allison and Jack. He was a junior college Division III All-America guard in 1991 at Montgomery (Md.) C.C. He played two seasons at Newberry (S.C.) College under coach Tom Quinn and served as captain both seasons. He was inducted into the Pfeiffer Athletics Hall of Fame in 2013.
