After a lengthy search, Heath Schroyer will join the men’s basketball program as an assistant coach, replacing the recently departed Terry Nashif. CBS Sports Jon Rothstein first broke the news.
The hire represents a homecoming of sorts for Schroyer, who previously served as an assistant in Provo from 1997 to 2001, when Steve Cleveland manned the Cougars’ bench. Current head coach Dave Rose was also an assistant on that staff.
Since leaving BYU, Schroyer has been on an extended journey through the Division I coaching ranks—including stops as the head man at Wyoming, Portland State and Tennessee Martin, and stints as an assistant at Wyoming, Fresno State, UNLV and, most recently, North Carolina State where he was the associate head coach under Mark Gottfried last season.
