BC-BKC--BYU-Rose Retires

PROVO, Utah (AP) — Dave Rose is stepping down as BYU’s head basketball coach after 14 seasons during which he led the Cougars to 13 straight postseason berths, including eight NCAA Tournament appearances.

Rose announced his retirement Tuesday, bringing an end to a career during which he became the school’s second all-time winningest coach. The 61-year-old Rose compiled a 348-135 record after taking over the program in 2005, ranking behind Stan Watts, who went 371-254 from 1949 to 1972.

Rose led his teams to 13 20-win seasons, six consecutive 25-win seasons and back-to-back 30-win seasons.

The high point for Rose and the Cougars came during the 2010-11 season, when a team led by national player of the year Jimmer Fredette advanced to the Sweet 16.
