Trailblazer Tamara Moore joins Celtics Summer League staff


“I think I’m on the right track right now.”

The Celtics add Tamara Moore, a game changer in the basketball world, to their Summer League coaching staff.

Moore, 42, became the first black woman to coach a men’s collegiate basketball team when she took the job as head coach at Mesabi Range College in Virginia, Minnesota, in 2020.

She played at the University of Wisconsin, followed by seven seasons in the WNBA, where she won a title with the Detroit Shock in 2003. Moore is currently making strides in the coaching world.

She thanked Allison Feaster, Stacey Lovelace, and Taj McWilliams-Franklin, her “WNBA sisters,” for helping make this possible. In an interview on Good morning America In late June, Moore spoke about her trip.

“There are many of these women who are making further strides forward,” Moore told Robin Roberts and Michael Strahan. “Allison Fester is doing things with Boston. I just want to be able to continue on this path. I think I’m on the right track right now.”

Moore tweeted late Saturday night that it was “time to start packing” because she was leaving for Boston on Sunday.
