Cougar Queries: "Cancer changed the way I view my time with others"

Cougar Queries is a series profiling BYU employees by asking them a few simple questions about their work, interests and life. 

Name: David J. Rose
BYU employee since: 1997
My job at BYU is… Head Coach, Men's Basketball

Currently I’m working on… season number 10.

When I’m lecturing in front of a class, I’m really thinking… "What are these guys really thinking about?"

Cancer ...changed the way I view... my time here with others.

Students don’t think I notice… how they treat each other.

My favorite college class was… Business Law. (That's where I met my wife, Cheryl.)

My advice to incoming freshman is to… learn how to manage your time.

My advice to graduating seniors is to… learn how to manage your time.

The best-kept BYU secret is… the students, they are awesome.

My favorite BYU tradition is… lights on Y Mountain.

My favorite spot on campus is… the Marriott Center.

The title of my autobiography would be…  One More Point.

I’m most looking forward to… another winning season.

I’m secretly good at… water skiing. 

I feel alive when I’m… serving others.

I dream about one day… watching games for fun!
