David Jack Rose (born December 19, 1957) is an American college basketball coach and the current head coach of the BYU Cougars men's basketball team. A graduate of Houston's Northbrook High School in Houston, Texas, Rose was co-captain of "Phi Slama Jama," the University of Houston's college basketball squad featuring Clyde Drexler and Hakeem Olajuwon that finished as national runner-up in the 1983 NCAA Men's Division I Basketball Tournament.[1]


Dave Rose was named the head basketball coach at BYU in 2005, replacing Steve Cleveland and began the first of eleven straight 20-win seasons in 2005-06. Rose inherited a 9-21 team and immediately posted a 20-9 record, the second best turnaround in college basketball in 2005-06.[2] Rose recruited Jimmer Fredette in 2007, who was selected by all awards as National Player of the Year. In 2010, Rose coached BYU to their first NCAA tournament victory in 17 years in a double-overtime win against the University of Florida.[3] In 2011, Rose's team shared the regular season Mountain West title with San Diego State and advanced to the Sweet Sixteen in the NCAA tournament, BYU's first appearance in that round in 30 years.[4]

In April 2011, Rose signed a five-year head coaching contract extension with BYU.[5] In 2011-12, Rose coached the team in their first season as members of the West Coast Conference. Rose coached the Cougars to their 6th straight NCAA tournament appearance. Participating in the First Four round, the Cougars made the largest comeback in NCAA Tournament history, beating Iona 78-72 after previously trailing by 25. On January 19, 2013, Rose won his 200th game as a Division I coach, in a game against San Diego. He won his 300th game as a Division I coach on February 4, 2017 in a BYU win against Portland.

Personal life[edit]

Rose is married to his wife Cheryl and they have three children. Rose served a full-time mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Manchester, England from 1977-79.[6] In June 2009 he was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer and returned to coaching later that year.[7]
