Following Utah Valley’s win over Bakersfield Saturday night, head coach Dick Hunsaker announced that he has decided to step down at the end of the season. Hunsaker, who’s also been a Division I head coach at Utah and Ball State, has been the head coach Utah Valley since 2003. During his time at the WAC program, Hunsaker’s won 205 games and last season led the Wolverines to a WAC regular season title.
Hunsaker stated that this was the right time to make the move, with his youngest son returning from his LDS mission and there also being the desire to spend more time with his grandchildren.
“My wife likes the timing, as this opens the window to allow us to pick up our youngest son Zachary from his LDS mission in Africa,” Hunsaker said in the statement. “Also, I am looking forward to getting to know my seven grandchildren.”
Utah Valley currently has a record of 11-15, 5-9 in WAC play, and the Wolverines will be the six seed in next week’s WAC tournament.
