Boise State men’s basketball head coach Leon Rice has announced that David Moats will transition into the role of assistant coach.
Moats enters his seventh season with Boise State after joining the program in 2017-18. He spent five seasons as the director of operations (2017-22) before moving into the newly-created role of director of recruiting ahead of the 2022-23 season.
His tenure with the Broncos coincides with one of the best stretches in program history. Boise State has combined for a 126-68 record with four 20-win seasons, back-to-back appearances in the NCAA Tournament for only the second time in program history and a pair of NIT appearances (2017-18, 2020-21).
In 2021-22, the Broncos set program bests for total wins (27), conference wins (15) and consecutive wins (14) on their way to winning the Mountain West regular-season title outright and capturing the Mountain West Tournament crown – both firsts for the program.
The NCAA Division I Council elected to allow five countable on-court assistant coaches in men’s basketball, while maintaining the limit of three for off-campus recruiting, effective July 1.
