BYU gives Rose new 4-year contract

PROVO — BYU Director of Athletics Tom Holmoe announced Monday that men's basketball coach Dave Rose has agreed to a new four-year contract that will take him through the 2010-11 season.

"Dave has done an excellent job of guiding our men's basketball program since his appointment as head coach," Holmoe said. "His passion and leadership I believe are reflected in the teams he coaches and the success they have on and off the court."

Rose guided BYU to back-to-back 20-win seasons and the program's first national ranking in 14 years since succeeding Steve Cleveland as BYU coach April 11, 2005. Rose coached last year's team to a 25-9 overall record and the Mountain West Conference regular-season title (13-3), while earning his second consecutive MWC coach of the year award. He is the first head coach in BYU men's basketball history to earn the annual league honor in back-to-back seasons.

Rose owns a .714 winning percentage with a 45-18 record in his two seasons guiding the Cougars, including a 25-7 (.781) conference resume. He boasts a .739 overall winning percentage as a college head coach (212-75) counting his seven seasons at Dixie State College in St. George.
