A Mason graduate will take the helm as the new head football coach at La Salle.
Nate Moore, a 1999 Mason High School graduate, was formerly introduced Tuesday during a live online interview hosted by WSLN, La Salle’s communications network.
Moore is the ninth La Salle head football coach in school history. The school started in 1960.
According to La Salle, there were four finalists for the position. La Salle and Moore worked out final details on Monday night.
Moore said he approached the interview process by being himself and admitted the La Salle search committee was very thorough.
Minster, a Division VI program, made three consecutive state playoff appearances (2010-2012) under Moore. Asked about the transition from the Midwest Athletic Conference to the Greater Catholic South division, Moore said: “Trust me, I wouldn’t apply for this job if I didn’t think I was ready.”
Moore led Minster to a 25-13 record in three seasons (2010-2012). Minster was 1-9 in 2009 and 6-24 over the previous three seasons before he arrived.
Moore, a former Mason defensive end, played right tackle at the University of Dayton from 1999-2003, according to La Salle. He was offensive line coach at Hamilton and Chaminade-Julienne under current Withrow head coach Jim Place.
