Moseley Named Editor-in-Chief of GoDucks.com


Posted Jul 11, 2013


EUGENE, Ore. – The University of Oregon Athletics Department has taken the next step as one of the nation’s leaders in online and social media by hiring long-time Eugene Register-Guard reporter Rob Moseley as the new Editor-in-Chief of its official website, www.GoDucks.com.

Moseley has covered Oregon sports for the Register-Guard since 2002 and has been the paper’s primary reporter for Duck football since 2007. He has nearly 20,000 followers on Twitter and has also covered men’s and women’s basketball, baseball, softball and track and field, among other UO sports for the Guard.

“The Oregon Athletics Department is on the leading edge of college sports, and I want to help put GoDucks.com on the leading edge of in-house publishing to compete with and surpass the efforts of traditional media,” said Moseley, a 1999 graduate of the University. “GoDucks.com, with traffic driven by extensive Twitter and Facebook outreach, will be able to provide the most thorough, in-depth coverage of Oregon football that there is, but it also will enlighten the fan base to other great stories that too often go uncovered by mainstream media newsrooms with ever dwindling resources.”

Not only will Moseley oversee the Ducks’ official website, but he will also write original features and game stories, provide real-time updates during UO football games and other events, and engage UO fans through social media, including Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and Vine.

Twitter fans can follow Moseley at his Oregon football account, @DuckFootball, as well as his new account, @GoDucksMoseley.

In addition to his reporting, Moseley has authored three books on the history of Oregon football. He co-authored “Game Day: Oregon Football” in 2007, and wrote a second book, “What it Means to Be a Duck” in 2009. Moseley then delved into extensive archival research for the 2013 co-authored book, “100 Things Oregon Fans Should Know & Do Before They Die,” which features an impressive overview of notable UO players, coaches, games and traditions.
