Jun 20, 2024, 10:58 AM | Updated: 11:41 am

The Runnin’ Utes needed one more assistant coach after Tramel Barnes left to take a job with South Dakota State and they got one as of Tuesday afternoon.

David Evans comes to the Utes with lots of knowledge and familiarity of basketball in the state due to his time with the Wasatch Academy, RSL Academy, and Lone Peak High school.

“Dave is an outstanding basketball coach,” head coach Craig Smith said. “He has demonstrated success as a head coach throughout his career and understands winning. Dave has won at a high-level no matter where he’s been and there is a reason for that. In addition to his players raving about him, another aspect that became very apparent during this search process is how many genuine relationships he’s had with coaches around the globe. We are excited to welcome Dave and his family to the Runnin’ Utes.”
