Provo • Dave Rose said this was one of the toughest things he had done for a while, but he was never cracked or was too emotional Tuesday morning when he told his players that he retired after 14 seasons as BYU's Main Basketball Coach
He saved the tears for the farewell press conference on Tuesday afternoon, obviously.
The two-time survivor of cancer who became a profitable coach in the history of the program and picked up the national profile of Cougars, taking his teams to eight NCAA tournaments and Sweet 1
Surrounded by his wife, children, grandchildren, current and former players and BYU athletic director Tom Holomee, who never admits that the coach is pushed into a retirement, Podos wound, Rose said it was time to retire. "
" My training soul has set me here today, "he said, choking the tears several times, but never hinting that he might have been expelled. "I always say to everybody," you can not tell how you feel. You can pretend that you can ignore it, but you know from inside how you feel. And my coaching soul said it was time and time to finish.
BYU MILESTONES of DAVE ROSE
* Won 348 games, second in the history of BYU behind Stan Watts (371)
* Draws .720 Victory Percentage, Best Percentage of Winners In The History Of The Program
* They took Cougars to eight NCAA tournaments and five NIT appearances
• They posted 13 consecutive seasons of 20 or more victories, never lost as coach
Rose was the staff of coach Steve Cleveland at BYU from 1997-2005, then took over when Cleveland left for Fresno. He produced a record of 348 wins and 135 losses for a winning rate of .720, including a 200-27 record at the Marriott Center.
"Thirty-six years I've been [coaching]," he said. "And today I will retire. I had the opportunity to talk to the players and encourage them to move forward and to cope with the challenge that is at hand. But most of all, I had the opportunity to think with my family how happy I am. I am 61 years old and still have not worked one day in my life.
Rose said he told his players last week that "it is possible" to withdraw. Rose, Holmo and other BYU administrators met several times last week to discuss a possible buyout for the two years remaining under the coach's contract.
Before Rose talked, Holmo said the day was "all about Dave Rose" and he would not. to discuss possible heirs. Quincy Lewis, who has been an assistant at BYU since 2015, is called an intermediate coach.
"Dave is an outstanding coach at BYU and is recognized in the profession by his peers as one of the best during his term," Holmoe said. "Roses will always be part of the Cogar family."
Now, Holmoe has a search for basketball coaches in his hands.
This search will be narrow, considering that BYU's main coaches – owned and run by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints – must be members of this faith. Some of the first candidates include Utah Valley Coach Mark Pope (former BYU assistant), Dixie State University coach John Junkins, and State coach in Portland Barrett Peyre.
Some BYU boosters would like to see either a Los Angeles helper Lakers "Mad Dog" Madsen or Utah Jazz assistant, Alex Jensen, gets the job. Madsen has interviewed the assistant coach who last year went to Li Kumard, while Jensen, a former Utah Ute, never showed interest in leaving the ranks.
BYU's best player last season, junior forward Yolli Childs, said: The announcement surprised him because Rose never lost his passion to train during the recent season when Cougars went 19-13, the first time in the coach , that BYU did not win 20 matches.
Childs is expected to leave BYU soon and become a professional, but declined to recognize this Tuesday because he wanted the whole attention to focus on Rose.
"He's a great coach," said Childs, "and he had a great career."
Rose withdrew from 23 victories that failed to catch Hall of Fame coach Stan Watts for the most victories (371) in school history, awaiting the NCAA complaint school last November that could remove BYU (and Rose) from 47 wins. 659002] "I feel like I'm the happiest person ever," he said. "I will not come out here with any regret as to how hard we have worked, how we have tried, how we have tried to do it the right way, with the right people. But I will leave here, I wish we had done more [such as make it the Final Four].
Asked why he did not have to capture Watts' record, Rose said his family members were also asking this question. He told them that "the numbers on one page" are not very important to him.
"My God, we had a lot of victories," he said, "but what I really hope is that people have fun,

Rose said he spent the morning meeting with his current players and called out former players and coaches to tell them
Rose started his 14th season with the seventh biggest win among the NCAA coaches. He led BYU for eight NCAA tournaments and five NIT tournaments. However, the last appearance of the Cougars NCAA tournament was four years ago, a loss of Ole Miss in the first four game in Dayton, Ohio, and missed the post-season game this spring for the first time in its term.
Rose asked his wife, Sheryl, to speak for a few minutes, and also asked his whole family to stay and be applauded.
"He will leave this work without regret because he has given him all he has," said Sheryl Rose. "He left everything there."
Dave Rose has regretted that he could never return the program where he was when Freett led the Kugars to the NCAA Sweet 16 Tournament in March 2011. has declined steadily since Cougars went independent in football in 2011 and set up basketball and most of its other sports at the West Coast conference.
The coach also struggled to keep top players moving or heading to Europe to play professional basketball. , as Eric Mika and Elajza Bryant have done over the past two years and Childs is expected to make this year.
"It's hard here in BYU," Rose said, referring to two-year church missions and transfers that all college programs are experiencing. , – There are so many changes. You have so many players going in and out. "
Cougars were rivals Utah, Utah and the Utah Valley last season but were upset by Weber's status, which resulted in 14 points for San Francisco, which cost them the two seeds and doubles of the WCC tournament, and continued 19-13. Their season ended in the quarterfinals of the WCC tournament with an inconvenient loss of 80-57 in San Diego, a team they took in the regular season. BYU, was overdue by 44 points in the Orleans Arena in Las Vegas, and the disappointment was evident on the bench in the second half and during the press conference press conference.
Cougars have an average of 11,958 in 16 home games this season, the 29th best in the country, but 2362 fewer fans per match than last season. This was the lowest attendance of their home from the 2005-06 season, the first year of Rose. Many college basketball programs have encountered visits, but few are drastic for a year.
Finally, there was a fiasco by Nick Emery. Cougars' young guard was interrupted and the program was sanctioned by the NCAA after finding that Emery had taken the wrongful benefits of the BYU boosters, including travel and car use. The NCAA forced BYU to release 47 victories and put the program on probation for two years. Emery was reinstated in December last December after he suffered nine games and played the rest of the season 2018-19. The School Against Penalties
Despite what many have seen as a program that has been leveled over the past few years, Rose signed a one-year deal last November, a day before the start of the season in Nevada's top 10. The agreement was supposed to take it through the 2020-21 season.
Rose told The Salt Lake Tribune at the WCC media event last October that he is not close to retirement and can not see himself doing anything else. 19659002] "I hope it never happens. That's how I feel right now, "he said, noting that he had been relieved of pancreatic cancer, diagnosed in 2009 and again in 2011 for more than half a dozen years.
Obviously these feelings have changed.
