Robert Mosley, who enjoyed virtually unparalleled success at the prep level before moving into the collegiate coaching ranks, joined the Georgia Basketball staff in the summer of 2012. He spent the previous two seasons as an assistant coach at Alabama.
"Coach Mosley has earned the respect of everyone throughout the basketball ranks," Andy Landers said. "His work at every level has been superbly done and produced successful results. He relates extremely well to both coaches and players and has been a valuable asset to our staff. His coaching experience, teaching capabilities and knowledge of basketball will help us continue our constant quest to be the best we can be."
Mosley has enjoyed stellar coaching success at both levels. Three of the four college teams he's worked with have advanced to post-season play, highlighted by Georgia's run to the "Elite Eight" round of the 2013 NCAA Tournament.
Mosley joined the Alabama staff in 2010 and made an immediate impact on the Tide's fortunes. Alabama advanced to the "Sweet 16" round of the 2011 WNIT, the program's first postseason appearance since 2002. Individually, Tierney Jenkins was named first-team All-SEC after leading the league and finishing fourth nationally in double-doubles. In addition, Kaneisha Horn was named Freshman All-SEC.
"I'm excited about the opportunity to come to Georgia and the opportunity to work with an outstanding staff," Mosley said. "Coach Landers is a hall of famer, Joni Crenshaw is one of the brightest up-and-coming coaches in all of women's basketball and Angie Johnson is a very seasoned and highly-respected coach and recruiter. I think we can do great things."
From 2004-10, Mosley served as head coach at Ramsay High School in Birmingham, Ala., where he led the Rams to four 5A state titles in seven seasons. Ramsay advanced to an additional 5A Final Four during that span and also won five Birmingham City Championships. All told, Mosley compiled a 187-48 record at Ramsay and coached more than 20 players who went on to play at the collegiate level, headlined by Katherine Graham (LSU), Kaneisha Horn (Alabama), Samone Kennedy (South Carolina) and Sammeika Thrash (Rutgers).
Mosley was tabbed Alabama's 5A Coach of the Year four consecutive years (2004-07) and was named 2006 National Coach of the Year by the National Federation of High School Coaches Association.
Off the court, Mosley has been equally as active serving as a lecturer at various conferences and coaching clinics and was a member of the selection committee for the Women's Basketball Coaches Association High School All-America Game.
A native of Mobile, Ala., Mosley received his associates degree in science from Bishop State Community College in 1995 and a bachelor's degree in social science education from Miles College in 1999.
Mosley was a two-year starter at small forward for Miles, a Division II school in Fairfield, Ala., and also is a member of the Miles' Sports Hall of Fame.
