BYU men’s basketball announced on Thursday that assistant head coach Terry Nashif is leaving the coaching staff to pursue business opportunities.

“Our time at BYU has been an amazing opportunity and experience for me and my family,” Nashif said. “Being associated with Coach Rose, both as a player and a coach, has been one of the great honors of my life. I’m very excited for the future as I’ve decided it’s the best time to pursue opportunities outside of basketball. I’ll be forever grateful for my years at BYU.”

Nashif joined the Cougars’ staff in 2005. He previously played for BYU under coach Steve Cleveland from 2001 to 2005, appearing in 103 games and starting in 14.

During Nashif’s time on the staff, BYU went 305-111 winning four conference titles while making eight NCAA tournament and four NIT appearances.

“We are grateful for Terry, Katie, and their family for their hard work, dedication and sacrifice for BYU basketball,” Rose said. “Terry’s role has been vital to the consistency of our program. His presence will be missed within our staff and amongst our players. I have all the confidence in the world that Terry will be very successful in his future endeavors.”
