Oregon Ducks women’s basketball head coach suddenly has two coaching positions available.

Assistant coaches Mike Moser and Oti Gildon are both moving on for greener pastures. Moser has accepted the same position with the Boston Celtics and Gildon has accepted a full-time assistant coaching job with Seattle University.

Moser, who played the 2013-14 season with the Ducks, spent just one season under Kelly Graves before moving on with his career.

In a tweet, Moser thanked his fellow coaches and said that he would be a Duck forever. He was the lead recruiter and was in charge of player development for the women’s basketball program.

Before coaching at Oregon, Moser was working in player development and analytics for the Dallas Mavericks from 2019-21, while also serving as an international scouting consultant and personal basketball trainer.

Gildon, also a former Duck basketball performer, was the interim Director of Creativity/Student-Athlete Support within the Oregon program.

According to Seattle coach Suzy Barcomb, Gildon being a native of the Northwest will be a huge advantage for the Redhawks.

“Oti will be instrumental in the development of our players, both on the court and in the community,” Barcomb said in a statement. “Her collegiate career speaks volumes to her high basketball IQ and ability to compete at a high level, allowing her to have an immediate impact on our program, particularly with our post and forwards. Her familiarity with the Pacific Northwest in terms of recruiting will be an added benefit.”
