Warner University Announces Sam Moorer as Men’s Basketball Assistant Coach

Warner University announces Sam Moorer as a Men’s Basketball Assistant Coach. 

Warner University Men’s Basketball Head Coach Sean Hanrahan announced the hiring of Sam Moorer as the Royals’ assistant coach in May 2022. Moorer comes to Warner University after spending 8 seasons as the head coach at Seffner Christian Academy in Tampa, Fla. During his time there, the Crusaders compiled a record of 143-89, two district championships (2017, 2019), two regional championships (2017, 2019), two Final Fours (2017, 2019), and one state-runner-up appearance (2019). In 2019, Moorer received Coach of the Year awards from the Tampa Bay Basketball Coaches Association and the Tampa Bay Times. 

Moorer said,  “I am incredibly grateful to Coach Han for the opportunity to join his staff at Warner. I have known him since I was in high school, and have always looked up to him as a person and coach. During my time coaching high school basketball, he was always a phone call away, willing to offer advice or lend his ear. I have always considered him to be a mentor and friend, and to now have the opportunity to coach under him is truly something special. Coach Hanrahan and his staff have built an exceptional program here and I am excited to join them and experience everything the Warner community offers.”
Moorer graduated from Florida College with a degree in Business Administration and completed his master’s in Educational Leadership at National Louis University. Moorer was also a member of the Falcons’ 2008 USCAA National Runner-Up team.
Most recently, Moorer served as a missionary in East Africa where he spent time in Kenya and Zimbabwe serving the poor, widowed, orphaned, and oppressed.

Hanrahan said, “Coach Moorer will be an excellent addition to our staff. He is the son of longtime Head Coach and Athletic Director at Florida College, Ken Moorer. Sam has grown up around the college game. He understands what it takes to succeed as a coach and a Christ-follower. I have known Sam for over 15 years, we both knew this day would come and I am ecstatic to say that now is the time. He has such a strong connection to his faith and has used that strength to lead young men to Christ as a Head High School coach. He has so much to offer, I can not wait to be a part of his journey as a collegiate coach.”
