BYU coach Dave Rose, left, shakes hands with UVU coach Mark Pope after game Friday, Nov. 13, 2015, in Provo. Pope is among the candidates who may replace Rose at BYU.

With the search for a new men’s basketball coach in full swing, Cougar Insiders Dick Harmon and Brandon Gurney take a hard look at the leading candidates. From Mark Pope (considered the front-runner), to Alex Jensen, Mark Madsen, Quincy Lewis, Barret Peery and beyond, Harmon and Gurney aim to separate the contenders from the pretenders. They also examine the challenges of the job and the legacy that coach Dave Rose leaves behind. Lastly, they offer their final takeaways on spring football camp, which folded up the tent last week. That and more on this week's episode.
