|Position:||Associate Head Coach|
|Alma Mater:||Saint Joseph's '02|
Susan Moran, the all-time leading scorer in Saint Joseph's basketball history, enters her fifth season as associate head coach and 15th season overall on the coaching staff at Hawk Hill.
A 2002 graduate of Saint Joseph's, Moran is responsible for guard development, opponent scouting and international recruiting. Moran, who began working with the guards after spending five seasons working with the post players, has seen multiple players garner individual honors.
Under her guidance, 14 Hawks have received All-Big 5 honors, seven earned Atlantic 10 All-Conference distinctions, and four were named to A-10 All-Rookie Team selections. Three Hawks were also named Big 5 Rookies of the Year, and had the 2013 A-10 Most Improved Player and A-10 Championship Most Outstanding Player.
Additionally, Moran has been instrumental in international recruiting as the number of foreign-born Hawks has more than doubled, from seven to 15.
As a Hawk, the Tullamore, Ireland, native started all 122 games in her career and is the only player in SJU history to lead the team in both scoring and rebounding for four consecutive seasons. An Honorable Mention All-American by the Associated Press and the WBCA in 2002, Moran scored 2,340 points and holds seven other school records, including career marks for free throws made and field goals made. She ranked fourth in the nation in scoring (23.3 points per game) as a senior.
Moran was named the Atlantic 10 and Philadelphia Big 5 Player of the Year in 2002 and the Rookie of the Year by both in 1999. She was also a finalist for the Senior Class Award during her final year. The epitome of the term “student-athlete,” Moran was a two-time Academic All-American and was twice the Atlantic 10's Student-Athlete of the Year. Saint Joseph's made two trips to the NCAA Tournament and one to the WNIT during her time on Hawk Hill.
On February 24, 2008, Moran's accomplishments on the court were recognized by the Hawks as she became just the second woman in Saint Joseph's basketball history to have her jersey (10) retired. Moran was later inducted into the Saint Joseph's Women's Basketball Hall of Fame in the spring of 2008, the Philadelphia Big 5 Hall of Fame in January of 2009, the SJU Athletic Hall of Fame in October 2010 and was named a member of the inaugural A-10 Legends Class of 2013.
Following her college career, Moran spent time playing for the WNBA's New York Liberty and professionally in Spain, New Zealand and Australia. In 2005, Moran earned MVP honors of the Women's National Basketball League in New Zealand after leading the Canterbury Wildcats to the league title. In the summer of 2006, Moran earned MVP honors of the Queensland Australia Basketball League as a member of the Rockhampton Cyclones. She returned to the hardwood as a member of the Irish National Team at the European Qualifiers.
An active member of the Women's Basketball Coaches Association, Moran earned her master's of business administration from Saint Joseph's in December of 2007.
