Former Issaquah football coach Gary Moore dies

Former Issaquah football coach Gary Moore has died.

Moore apparently died of a stroke. He was 68.

Moore was 137-72-4 in 21 years at Issy. He coached from 1967-84 then returned to coach from 1988-90. Moore led Issy to seven state-playoff appearances and three KingCo titles.

His 1980 team advanced to the big-school state championship and lost to Mount Tahoma of Tacoma 21-3. That was the same year that neighboring Liberty, which also is in the Issaquah School District, made it to what now would be called the state 3A title game and lost to Centralia, 39-26.
