Mutcherson named Assistant Basketball Coach at Utah Valley

Head coach Todd Phillips has announced the hiring of Rosbie Mutcherson as an assistant coach on his men’s basketball staff at Utah Valley. Mutcherson comes to UVU after working the past two seasons as an assistant coach at Idaho State. 
“Rosbie is an up-and-coming young coach,” said Phillips. “He is a great recruiter having worked for two of the most successful JUCO programs in the country. Rosbie brings a great passion and knowledge of the game and is highly skilled at developing players. Rosbie brings a high level of energy and enthusiasm that our team will feel right away.”
Mutcherson’s duties at Idaho State included scouting, recruiting, social media, guard development, community engagement, video operations, and NCAA eligibility. He was also a name, image, and likeness liaison. 
Prior to his time at Idaho State, Mutcherson was the director of video operations for the Cleveland State men’s basketball program. He helped the Vikings to a Horizon League regular season championship. The Vikings also won the Horizon League Tournament and earned a spot in the 2021 NCAA Tournament for the third time in school history, and first since 2009.
In 2019-20, Mutcherson joined the Salt Lake Community College (SLCC) as an assistant coach. While at SLCC, Mutcherson worked with the guards and served as the team’s offensive coordinator. The Bruins finished the 2019-20 season with an impressive 29-4 record and a region championship. The Bruins earned the No. 4 overall seed at the NJCAA Tournament.
Mutcherson also worked two seasons as an assistant coach at Northwest Florida State College. In his three years at the NJCAA level, Mutcherson helped maintain a 100% graduation rate. He was also part of two NJCAA Elite Eight appearances, three straight region/conference championships, three NJCAA First Team All-American selections, and one National Player of the Year. 
“I want to first thank Ryan Looney and the entire Idaho State University community,” said Mutcherson. “I was welcomed and given the opportunity of a lifetime to be a Bengal. I grew tremendously under Coach Looney’s leadership, and I am excited to see the program ascending to new heights. I have blood on those bricks, I will always be a Bengal.”
“I also want to thank Todd Phillips,” added Mutcherson. “He is one of the best coaches in this business and a man of great character. He loves his guys. Utah Valley is a sleeping giant. The proof is in the pudding. I look forward to helping Coach Phillips and our staff continue to compete for championships. I am very proud to be a Wolverine!”
The Martinez, Georgia native played collegiately at Covenant College in Lookout Mountain, Georgia where he earned his bachelor’s degree in interdisciplinary studies. He also earned a master’s degree in business administration from Crown College in 2019.
