BYU gives five-year extension to head coach Dave Rose


BYU head coach Dave Rose received a five-year extension early this week and it gives him until 2019-20 to head the program.

Rose is in his 10th season with the Cougars this season and the move was announced by the school on Monday. According to the release, Rose is 250-86 during his time at BYU. He owns the best winning percentage of any head coach in school history and he’s second in wins to Stan Watts.

“I’m excited about the future of BYU basketball,” Rose said in the release. “Tom Holmoe, Brian Santiago and the university administration have provided great support and I look forward to the things we can accomplish together over the next several years. We have great student-athletes and coaches at BYU who are committed to the success of our program.”

The extension of Rose isn’t any major surprise, but it does give Rose more security in recruiting for the next wave of players.

The Cougars currently sit third in the WCC standings this season at 8-5 behind Gonzaga and Saint Mary’s. BYU is 18-8 overall.
