Kevin Young adds another assistant to coaching staff

Kevin Young was announced as BYU’s men’s basketball coach in mid-April. Since then, he’s added Brandon Dunson from Stanford and Chris Burgess from the University of Utah to his coaching staff.

Coach Young’s most recent addition was announced on Monday afternoon: Will Voigt, the current head coach of the Austin Spurs, the G-League affiliate of the San Antonio Spurs.

Outside of the NBA and the G-League, Voigt has years of experience around the entire world including Norway, China, Africa, Germany, and Egypt.

Sources have told Vanquish the Foe’s Robby McCombs that Voigt will likely lead the defense while Young will lead the offense.

“Will is someone I’ve had great respect for. He is a creative thinker, very organized and has an unmatched work ethic,” Young said in a statement. “He’s not afraid to push the envelope creatively, especially on the defensive end of the floor. Will is a high-level coach who I will lean on heavily.”

Three of the five assistant coach positions have now been filled. BYU athletic director Tom Holmoe said last week that the other spots would be filled within the coming days.
