PROVO, Utah – BYU basketball head coach Kevin Young continues to assemble his coaching staff.

Young has hired Will Voigt as his lead assistant coach.

Voigt is the third assistant on Young’s bench. He joins a staff with fellow assistants Brandon Dunson and Chris Burgess. BYU also hired Doug Stewart for a Chief of Staff position.

Voigt’s hire leaves BYU basketball with two bench spots remaining. BYU athletic director Tom Holmoe said last week at the Big 12 Spring Business meetings that the hires would be completed “in the coming days.”

“Will is someone I’ve had great respect for,” Young said. “He is a creative thinker, very organized and has an unmatched work ethic. Will has years of head coaching experience in the NBA G-League, as well as vast experience coaching all over the world, including in the Rio Olympics. 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.”

Will Voigt comes to BYU after spending the past season as the head coach of the Austin Spurs in the NBA G League. He had a record of 20-14 this past season with the G-League’s Spurs.

Voigt was also the head coach of the Bakersfield Jam (now the Motor City Cruise) from 2009 to 2014.

He’s still the winningest coach in the Cruise’s franchise history with 134 wins.

During that stretch in Bakersfield, Voigt coached against Kevin Young, who was the head coach of the Utah Flash and Iowa Energy.

Voigt has also been the head coach of the Angola National Team, where he helped the team qualify for the 2019 FIBA World Cup.
