‘BYU got a good one.’

That’s the talk across the country as NBA and college basketball programs found out that BYU hired Kevin Young to be its next head coach. After a painful week with Coach Pope off to Kentucky and players going into the transfer portal, BYU fans finally got some good news as the program got arguably the best candidate that was available.

Coach Young is currently the top assistant coach for the Phoenix Suns and is also the highest paid assistant coach in the league. He comes to Provo with a plethora of NBA coaching experience and was one of the favorites to take over several open positions in the league.

“Kevin is someone we have had our eye on for a while,” BYU athletic director Tom Holmoe said in a statement. “He has risen to the top of NBA assistant-coaching ranks. He has been a lead candidate for NBA head-coaching jobs and has been instrumental in developing top-level NBA talent. … Kevin will bring a new perspective, with an extensive NBA background to our program. He is a phenomenal fit at BYU.”

Throughout his in the NBA, Young has worked with stars such as Devin Booker, Kevin Durrant, and Joel Embiid to name a few.

Adjusting to college basketball will be an adjustment, so getting experienced assistant coaches will be key for Coach Young.
