PROVO, Utah – It’s been almost a month since BYU hired Mark Pope to be their next head basketball coach. He announced his assistant coaches on April 25.

Chris Burgess, Cody Fueger and Nick Robinson were hired to Pope’s staff as they begin a new era of BYU basketball.

As the staff is getting acclimated to their new positions, Pope and the BYU basketball team had one office left that had a window.

How did the assistant coaches decide who would get the office with a window? They shot for it.

Robinson wasn’t at the “shoot-off” so he was disqualified, which left Fueger and Burgess.

Both Fueger and Burgess made their first four before Fueger missed and Burgess won by hitting his next shot.

Both Fueger and Burgess joined BYU with Mark Pope from Utah Valley. Robinson was on the coaching staff at Seattle University.

Burgess played for Duke before transferring to the University of Utah and playing for the Utes from 2000-02. He began his coaching career with Pope at Utah Valley in 2015 after playing overseas for 10 years.

Fueger started his coaching career at Utah from 2002-07 before going to Louisiana Tech from 2007-11. He then went to UC Riverside and Utah State for one season each. BYU was his next stop from 2013-15 before joining Pope at Utah Valley.

Robinson began his coaching career in 2007 with Stanford. He spent one season with the Cardinal, William Jewell, three seasons with LSU in three different positions before being the head coach at Southern Utah from 2012-16. He was with Seattle from 2017-19.
