Cody Fueger was hired as an assistant coach in April 2019. Fueger comes to BYU from Utah Valley where he was an assistant to Mark Pope. He has also worked previously at BYU, Utah Valley, Utah State, UC Riverside, Louisiana Tech and Utah.

In his first season at BYU, Fueger helped the Cougars finish 24-8 overall and second in the West Coast Conference at 13-3. BYU was ranked as high as No. 15 – its first season ranked in the top 25 since 2010-11 – and finished the season No. 18/16. Nationally, BYU boasted one of the most efficient offenses in the nation, finishing No. 1 in 3-point field goal percentage, No. 2 in assist/turnover ratio, No. 3 in field goal percentage, No. 4 in 3-point field goals per game and No. 5 in assists per game.

Hired as part of Pope’s initial staff at Utah Valley in 2015, Fueger helped the Wolverines improve from 12 wins in 2015-16 to a program-record 25 victories in 2018-19. During his tenure, UVU made three-straight postseason appearances (2017, 2018, 2019) and registered back-to-back 20-win seasons (2017-18, 2018-19) – both program records.

The Wolverines also set several offensive records from 2015-19. UVU rewrote the top four spots in scoring average in the school record book, including a record 78.1 points per game in 2017-18. The Wolverines also claimed four of the top five spots for 3-point field goals made while setting the record with 300 in 2016-17.

Fueger was instrumental in the development of several Utah Valley players who earned all-league honors, including: Wyatt Lowell (2018-19 WAC Freshman of the Year), Kenneth Ogbe (2017-18 All-WAC First Team), Brandon Randolph (2017-18 All-WAC Second Team), Conner Toolson (2017-18 All-WAC Second Team) and Jake Toolson (2017-18 WAC All-Newcomer Team, 2018-19 WAC Player of the Year).

A coach with a reputation for developing strong relationships with his players, Fueger also has experience at BYU (2013-15), Utah State (2012-13), UC Riverside (2011-12), Louisiana Tech (2007-11) and Utah (2002-07). As director of operations at BYU for two seasons, Fueger helped the Cougars reach the NCAA tournament in 2014 and 2015.

In addition to his collegiate coaching experience, Fueger worked for the Utah Jazz during the summers of 2014 and 2017 to help run the organization’s pre-draft workouts and free agent mini-camps. In 2017 he was one of only three coaches – the others being from Florida State and Arizona – selected to assist the Jazz at the free agent mini-camp, where he coached more than 30 free agents through workouts, drills and games. In 2014, Fueger put 50-plus draft invitees through a series of workouts to aide Jazz management in making pre-draft evaluations. 

A native of Milwaukee, Wisconsin, Fueger and his wife Danielle have two children, Isabella and Andrew. He earned two degrees from the University of Utah – a bachelor’s degree in economics (2006) and a master’s in parks, recreation and tourism-sports management (2007).

“Cody is a true veteran of coaching, having coached at the college level for the last 17 years in every region of the country. He’s had experience in the highest levels of basketball, has recruited all around the world and has been mentored by some of the greatest coaches in the history of the game. Cody has a magical way of coaching players really hard while building strong relationships that last beyond their tenure under his tutelage.”
