BYU basketball announced the hiring of Heath Schroyer as a new assistant coach Thursday.

Schroyer was an assistant coach at BYU with current head coach Dave Rose from 1997-2001.

He brings nine seasons of head coaching experience to Provo between stops at Tennessee-Martin, Wyoming and Portland State.

“When this opportunity presented itself, it just felt right,” Schroyer said in a news release. “I’ve heard nothing but great things about the players in the program and I’m looking forward to rolling up my sleeves and working with those guys.”

Schroyer led Portland State to the school’s first regular-season conference title in 2005. Most recently, he compiled a record of 41-28 in two seasons at UT-Martin from 2014-16.

He has 11 years of Division-I assistant coaching experience between jobs at N.C. State, UNLV, Wyoming, Fresno State and BYU.

He replaces 10-year assistant coach Terry Nashif, who left BYU in April. Schroyer is known as a good defensive coach and recruiter.
