Enloe athletic director and boys’ basketball coach Tommy Moore will take on a new role this fall as he leads the formation of an athletics program at the new Rolesville High.
Moore, who has been the athletic director at Enloe for eight years, will hold the same position at Rolesville High when the school opens in August.
“I love Enloe,” Moore said. “I went to school here and have been teaching or coaching here in some capacity for 20 years now. ... This is just one of those kind of bucket list things that I wanted to try one day.”
Moore plans to stay at Enloe until the end of the current school year, but is already in the process of working with Rolesville High principal Ericka Lucas to begin hiring coaches, ordering equipment and building a booster club.
Moore said he would like to coach at Rolesville High in addition to his role as athletic director, as he has at Enloe, but is open to doing whatever is best for the new program.
Both the Enloe athletic director and varsity boys’ basketball coach positions are already posted as openings on the Wake County school district website.
An opening for a head football coach for Rolesville High also is listed.
Moore said he has already been in talks with area athletic directors such as Heritage’s Pat Kennedy, Wakefield’s Dexter Cooley and Holly Springs’ Andy Wheeler, who have recently led athletic programs through their early stages.
Though only freshmen and sophomores will make up the school’s student body during the first year, the school is expected to field varsity teams in all sports except football during the 2013-14 seasons.
The school will compete in the Greater Neuse River 4A Conference.
