Moseley posted a 45-29 record in three years at Boston University after working as an assistant on UConn coach Geno Auriemma’s staff.
She was at UConn during the Huskies’ 2010, 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2016 national championship seasons.
Wisconsin was seeking a new coach after firing Jonathan Tsipis earlier this month. Tsipis went 50-99 overall and 16-74 in Big Ten competition during his five seasons.
