Orem • Another one of BYU basketball coach Dave Rose's assistant coaches has landed a head coaching job.
Utah Valley University will announce Tuesday at an afternoon news conference that it has hired four-year BYU assistant Mark Pope to replace Dick Hunsaker as its head basketball coach, according to several sources familiar with the negotiations.
CBS Sports first reported the hiring early Monday afternoon.
Pope, 42, joined Rose's staff in 2011. He replaced Dave Rice, who left BYU to take the head coaching job at UNLV.
Pope helped BYU to 98-43 record in his four years on the staff and was primarily in charge of scouting opponents, coaching defense and working with post players.
