BYU Staff Update

BYU Head Basketball Coach Dave Rose has also made two changes to his coaching staff, including the promotion of Terry Nashif to assistant head coach and the addition of Lee Cummard as a graduate assistant.

Nashif has been a member of Rose’s staff since he was hired in 2005. He began his coaching career as director of operations and was named an assistant coach in 2007. A gifted tactician, Nashif provides the offensive game prep for BYU each game. Under his direction, BYU has been ranked in the top 10 in points per game in each of the last three seasons.

“Terry has been valuable in so many positions for our program,” Rose said. “As a player, director of operations, assistant coach and now assistant head coach, Terry has proven to be loyal and capable of anything we ask of him. He does an excellent job of helping us score in so many ways. I’m excited to see what he will do with this current roster.”

Cummard returns to BYU after a seven-year professional career overseas that included stints in France, Japan and Belgium, where he played the last four seasons. From 2005-09, Cummard was one of the most versatile players in program history. He helped lead BYU to three-straight conference titles and three-straight trips to the NCAA tournament. In 2008 he was the Mountain West Conference Player of the Year.

“Lee is one of the greatest competitors to come through BYU,” Rose said. “We’re excited to help him start his coaching career. He has a lot to offer. Our players will benefit from his experience and knowledge of the game.”
