Men’s Basketball Coaching Changes


ON May 9 BYU head basketball coach Steve Cleveland announced the addition of two new assistant coaches: former Cougar player Andrew K. Toolson, ’90, and Pine View High School (St. George, Utah) coach John N. Wardenburg, ’86. Assistant coach Nathan D. Call, ’93, was named director of basketball operations.

Call, who served as an assistant to Cleveland the past four seasons, takes over the position vacated by Jeff Judkins, BYU‘s new women’s basketball head coach. Toolson joins Cleveland’s staff after an 11-year professional career in the NBA and Europe. Wardenburg comes to BYU with 11 years of coaching experience at the high school and junior college level.

The additions, Cleveland’s first since he took over the BYU program in 1997, were prompted by Call’s move and the departure of former assistant Heath Schroyer, who accepted a position as assistant coach at the University of Wyoming in April.

“My staff has been completely loyal and totally dedicated to my vision for the BYU basketball program,” Cleveland said. “I am certainly grateful for the efforts of Dave, Heath, and Nate as assistants and now look forward to having Andy and John join the staff. I am excited about the enthusiasm and talents these men bring to our program.”
