BYU basketball: Dave Rose staying is Dave Rice leaving?
It's official — BYU coach Dave Rose is staying in Provo to help usher in a new era of Cougar basketball. While national player of the year Jimmer Fredette will be gone, BYU is set to become a member of the West Coast Conference. A news conference is being held this afternoon with Rose and athletic director Tom Holmoe to discuss Rose's new contract, which will include a hefty pay raise.
Meanwhile, Rose's top assistant, Dave Rice, is a finalist for the UNLV head coaching job. Read the Sporting News' take on the Rebels' vacancy, and a rundown on the top candidates, here. Rice is a former UNLV player, part of a team that went to back-to-back Final Fours and won the 1991 national championship. He also spent a decade on the Rebel bench as an assistant coach.
