Tim LaComb

Tim LaComb joined the BYU men's basketball staff in June 2007 as director of basketball operations and was elevated to assistant coach in 2010. In 2015, he was named associate head coach. A native of Alpine, Utah, LaComb came to the Cougars with 10 years of experience working with basketball programs at the university and high school levels.

In 2010-11, LaComb's first season as an assistant, the Cougars won a program record 32 games, advanced to the Sweet 16 in the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 1981 and finished No. 10/13 in the national polls.

With LaComb serving as a defensive scout the Cougars finished fifth in the nation in scoring margin, 15th in turnover margin and 37th in steals per game. BYU was also among the top 100 in field goal percentage defense, three-point field goal percentage defense, rebound margin and blocks per game.

In his second season as an assistant in 2011-12, LaComb helped BYU to its sixth-straight 25-win season and sixth-straight NCAA tournament bid. The Cougars finished 26-9 and advanced in the NCAA Tournament for a third-straight season with a 25-point comeback win over Iona, the biggest comeback in the history of the tournament.

In 2014-15, LaComb helped BYU win 25 games for the first time since the 2011-12 season and return to the NCAA tournament for the second-straight season and the eighth time in nine years.

In eight seasons since LaComb joined the staff in 2007, BYU has amassed a record of 212-70 (.752), won three conference titles and received six NCAA tournament bids. The Cougars have won 25-plus games six times including 30-plus wins in 2009-10 and 2010-11.

In three seasons as director of operations (2007-10), LaComb's primary responsibilities included coordinating team travel, providing support for academics, marketing and recruiting.

Prior to coming to BYU, LaComb worked on the men's basketball staff under Ray Giacoletti at the University of Utah from 2005-07 as the video coordinator. He previously served as a head student manager for two seasons at Utah from 1994-96 under Rick Majerus.

Between his stints at Utah, LaComb worked in private business and served six years as an assistant coach in Utah's high school ranks. He was an assistant at Lone Peak High School from 1999-2002 and at his alma mater American Fork from 2002-05. His teams reached the state semifinals four times in six years, with Lone Peak winning the state championship in 2000-01.

A cum laude graduate in mass communications/public relations from the University of Utah, LaComb and his wife Rachel have three children, Alyssa, Sam and Anna. LaComb served a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Boston, Massachusetts, from 1989-91.
