Heath Schroyer (born March 15, 1972, in Walkersville, Maryland) is an American college basketball coach, as of 2013[update] an assistant under Dave Rice at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. Schroyer had previously been the head coach at Portland State University (2002–05) and the University of Wyoming (2007–11).
Schroyer, a native of Maryland, played high school basketball under legendary head coach Morgan Wootten at DeMatha Catholic High School. Following high school, he was an All-Conference player at Kings River Community College before playing at Armstrong Atlantic State University, where he graduated in 1995 with a degree in liberal studies.
Schroyer's coaching career began following graduation when he was an assistant for one year at Kings River, then served as an assistant under Steve Cleveland at Fresno City College. When Cleveland became the coach at Brigham Young University in 1997, Schroyer followed him and spent the next four seasons as an assistant coach there. He became an assistant at the University of Wyoming for the 2001-02 season before being hired as the head coach at Portland State University.
At the time of his hiring, Schroyer was the second-youngest coach in Division I, and his first team at Portland State won just five games. In his third and final season at the school, Schroyer led the Vikings to a 19-9 record, including an 11-3 conference record and a Big Sky Conference championship. Following the season, Schroyer rejoined Cleveland as the associate head coach at Fresno State University.
On February 8, 2011, Schroyer was fired from his head coaching job at the University of Wyoming after starting 8-15 and 1-8 in Mountain West Conference play and a 49-68 record in four years. In May 2011, newly appointed UNLV Runnin' Rebels basketball coach Dave Rice announced that he had signed Schroyer on as an assistant.
