Former BYU Basketball Head Coach Dave Rose joins us to discuss his life as a new retiree, stories from his legendary playing and coaching career, and life lessons he’s gained from major medical battles.
Dave Rose played Junior College basketball at Dixie State College, in Saint George, Utah. After serving a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Manchester, England, he played for the University of Houston and was co-captain of the legendary “Phi Slamma Jamma,” alongside future NBA Hall of Famers Clyde Drexler and Hakeem Olajuwon. After trying his hand in the business world, he decided to pursue coaching. He climbed the ladder from being a High School basketball all the way to coaching Division I basketball at Brigham Young University. Coach Rose is currently retired, and spends his time traveling with his wife and attending BYU basketball games as a fan. He’s currently considering a career in broadcasting.
