BYU names Terry as new Assistant Men’s Basketball Coach

BYU head men’s basketball coach Mark Pope announced the addition of Collin Terry to the Cougars’ coaching staff as the program’s fourth assistant coach.

“I would like to thank Coach Mark Pope, Tom Holmoe, Brian Santiago and the BYU Administration for this incredible opportunity,” Terry said. “BYU has had a tremendous impact on me and my family. Both my father and uncle played quarterback for LaVell Edwards so my ties to Cougar athletics run deep. With BYU’s historic move into the premier college basketball conference, I look forward to assisting Coach Pope, his staff and players carry on BYU’s great basketball tradition. Go Cougars!”

Terry joins the Cougars after spending the past two seasons as an assistant coach for the Greensboro Swarm, the NBA G League affiliate of the Charlotte Hornets. During his time with the Swarm, he was instrumental in helping Cameron McGriff, Xavier Sneed and Kobi Simmons earn NBA call-ups. He also helped Bryce McGowens earn a multi-year NBA contract after starting the season on a 2-way contract. 

He previously worked in the G League as an assistant coach for the Maine Celtics in 2018-19 and an advanced scout for the Northern Arizona Suns from 2017-18. Terry was an assistant coach at Salt Lake Community College under current Utah Valley head coach Todd Phillips, helping the Bruins go 30-4 in 2017-18 en route to winning the Scenic West Athletic Conference regular season title, Region 18 Championship and No. 4 seed in the national tournament. 

He served a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Columbus, Ohio. He graduated with a bachelor’s in psychology from Utah Valley while obtaining a master’s in financial services from The American College.
