The University of San Diego is hiring Brandon Moore from the Colorado School of the Mines to be the next head coach for the Toreros football program, Pete Thamel of ESPN reported on Wednesday evening. Moore found great success recently with the Colorado School of the Mines, where he developed their defense into one of the best in the nation.
Last season was Moore’s first year as head coach for the Orediggers and it was a historic one, as he led them to their first-ever appearance in the NCAA Division II Championship Game. Mines won 13 games to get there, winning the program’s second consecutive NCAA Super Region IV title and fourth consecutive RMAC championship along the way. The 13 wins were the most in program history for the Orediggers and they completed just the third undefeated RMAC season (9-0) in the modern era.
San Diego plays in the Football Championship Subdivision, and one of their most famous former head coaches is current Michigan head coach Jim Harbaugh. He guided the Toreros to a 22-2 overall record during his final two years there (2004-2006), including back-to-back Pioneer League titles.
