St. Pierre played rugby at BYU from 2005 to 2009 and captained the 2009 squad on their way to BYU’s first rugby national championship. He served as an assistant coach for BYU Rugby from 2012 to 2017.

“Steve is a great representative of the type of young men the BYU Rugby program has produced over the years,” said assistant dean of students Jim Slaughter, who oversees the BYU Extramural Program. “We look forward to the future of BYU Rugby and express deep gratitude for our former coaches and their invaluable contributions to the building of this program.”

St. Pierre will replace David Smyth, who coached the team from 1990 to 2018. Smyth led the team to national championships in 2009, 2012, 2013, 2014 and 2015.

A graduate of BYU, St. Pierre earned both his BS in Accounting and Masters of Accounting from the Marriott School of Business in 2010. He is a certified public accountant and has worked as a tax manager for BDO.

“The BYU rugby team is a program that has had a huge impact on my life,” Coach St. Pierre said. “I am grateful and excited for the opportunity to continue the great work that has been done by the previous coaching staff and to start working with the players towards a successful season.”
