Kitchen added to Snow College Basketball Staff

Snow College men’s basketball head coach Andrew May has announced the hiring of assistant coach Brad Kitchen.

“Brad’s experience at two excellent D1 programs has prepared him for this opportunity to help develop our players and continue the momentum we have at Snow College,” May said. “Firstly, his love for the game coupled with his capacity for work and attention to detail stood out in the interviewing process. His optimistic energetic attitude is contagious and he also has developed as a leader that fits the culture we have at Snow College. I am happy to welcome Brad Kitchen to our team!

Kitchen joins the Badgers after working on BYU men’s basketball staff as a graduate assistant of operations.  He played a significant role in the operations of the team during an unprecedented COVID-19 year, helping the team reach its first NCAA tournament bid in five years. He is currently finishing his masters of mass communications program at BYU.

“I am excited for this new chapter in my life,” Kitchen said. “I am grateful for Coach May and the opportunity he has given me to coach, teach and serve the Badger Community. Coach May is an excellent coach with extensive coaching experience, but what impressed me more is that he is a great person. I have had the amazing opportunity to work and play for two incredible staffs at Utah Valley and BYU and Coach May is every part as good. I am excited to share my experiences at the Division 1 level and help our student-athletes achieve their dreams, both on and off the court. I can’t wait to get down to Ephraim and get to work. Go Badgers!”
