Jennifer Moore, his wife, and Jaidyn Moore, his daughter, died. His son, Jerrell, also survived the accident.

A 23-year-old woman was allegedly going the wrong way at the time of the accident early Saturday, according to multiple reports. There was also a third vehicle that was also hit, but the driver in that vehicle was able to escape with just minor injuries.

Moore — a former Badgers player — made several stops as an assistant coach, before returning to his alma mater in 2005. He then left following the 2009-10 season to be the head coach at Illinois-Chicago, where he worked for five seasons.

Following his departure from Illinois-Chicago, he was employed as a studio analyst for the Big Ten Network. When Bo Ryan announced his retirement and Greg Gard was named interim head coach, Gard hired Moore to his staff.

He has been on the staff ever since.

The 49-year-old Chicago, Illinois native also worked as an assistant coach at Loyola-Chicago, Ball State, Bradley, and Chicago. He was 49-11 in the five-seasons as a head coach at UIC.

As the Flames head coach, he only had one winning season in 2012-13. That season, the team went 18-16 and a second round exit in the CIT Tournament.
