Rose spent 22 seasons at BYU, the last 14 as head coach, compiling a 348-135 record with four regular-season conference titles and eight NCAA Tournament appearances, including six straight from 2007-12.
The Cougars haven't reached the tourney since 2015 but they've still won 91 games over those four seasons and never finished worse than third in the WCC.
With Rose out, who might BYU target?
Pope only has 10 seasons of coaching experience but is a former BYU assistant (2011-15) with 48 wins in the last two seasons in Orem, twice setting the program's single-season win record.

If BYU opts for an in-house hire, Tim LaComb is likely the top candidate. A longtime BYU assistant who started as director of ops in 2007, LaComb has strong relationships throughout the state and could lead a smooth transition.
Another former Rose assistant, Dave Rice (2005-11), has head-coaching experience (UNLV, 2011-16) and has spent the last three seasons on the staffs of Eric Musselman at Nevada and Mike Hopkins at Washington. For what it's worth, prior to arriving at BYU, he also spent one year on the Utah State staff.
