Birmingham, Ala. - The Southeastern Conference announced on Thursday that Terry Moore, a veteran NCAA official with 30 years of experience, will assume the role of Coordinator of Men's Basketball Replay. In the newly-created position, Moore will collaborate with game officials from SEC Headquarters for all monitor reviews during the 2017-18 conference schedule as part of a recently approved NCAA experimental rule.
In June of 2017, the NCAA approved an experimental rule at the request of the Southeastern Conference that will allow a conference to utilize a collaborative Instant Replay review process for all conference contests in the 2017-18 season. This collaboration will be limited to only those plays that are reviewable under NCAA Playing Rule 11. All reviews will be initiated by game officials, who maintain final decision-making authority. The SEC is the only conference utilizing a collaborative replay process this season.
Moore will work closely with SEC Coordinator of Men's Basketball Officials Mark Whitehead and SEC Associate Commissioner for Men's Basketball Dan Leibovitz to implement and manage the collaborative replay process.
"As the SEC prepares to implement the collaborative replay process in men's basketball, we believe it is critical to have an expert with extensive experience serving in this leadership role," said Commissioner Greg Sankey. "Terry is an accomplished NCAA and international official who has earned the respect of his peers as a rules expert. He is uniquely qualified to excel in this role having served as the instant replay operator during the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio."
A veteran of the Southeastern, Atlantic Coast, Big 12, American and Missouri Valley conferences, Moore has earned officiating assignments in 17 NCAA Tournaments, advancing to the Regional Finals on two occasions. His 27 years of international officiating experience includes the 2005 Gold Game in Mar del Plata, Argentina, and the 2006 World Championship Gold game in Saitama, Japan. For the last 10 years, Moore has been a FIBA Instructor for USA Basketball and is a member of the USA Basketball Official Selection Committee where he oversees the recruiting, training, evaluation, and testing of National and FIBA Certified officials who represent the USA in all FIBA events worldwide.
