Dave Rose played Junior College basketball at Dixie State College, in Saint George, Utah. After serving a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Manchester, England, he played for the University of Houston and was co-captain of the legendary “Phi Slamma Jamma,” alongside future NBA Hall of Famers Clyde Drexler and Hakeem Olajuwon. After trying his hand in the business world, he decided to pursue coaching.
