Doxie Moore

John Doxie Moore (born February 13, 1911; died April 1986) was an American basketball player and coach. He attended Delphi High School in Delphi, Indiana, and played college ball at Purdue University from 1930-34. He coached several professional basketball teams, including the Sheboygan Red Skins, the Anderson Packers and the Milwaukee Hawks in the 1950s.

Moore was hired to coach Sheboygan for the 1946-47 season. The Red Skins finished with a 26-18 record and qualified for the National Basketball League playoffs, where they were ousted in the first round. In 1947-48, Moore began the season as Sheboygan's head coach, but gave up the duties when the Red Skins obtained player-coach Bobby McDermott, a Hall of Fame guard, from the Chicago American Gears. The Gears players had been distributed among the NBL's teams when Chicago's league, the fledgling Professional Basketball League of America, folded in November 1947 after only three weeks in operation. McDermott coached Sheboygan to a 4-5 record in one month of duty before leaving for the Tri-Cities Blackhawks and handing the reins back to Moore. The Red Skins finished a disappointing 23-37 and missed the playoffs.

He also served as commissioner of the National Professional Basketball League, which struggled to finish its only season.

In the 1950s, Moore was an administrative assistant to Indiana Governor George N. Craig.

Moore was inducted into the Indiana Basketball Hall of Fame in 1978.
