LARAMIE, Wyo. — University of Wyoming head men’s basketball coach Jeff Linder recently announced the addition of Nick Whitmore to the team’s coaching staff.
Whitmore comes to Wyoming after serving as head coach at the prep school level for nearly a decade, producing 39 Division I players and one first round NBA Draft pick.
“I am very excited with the addition of Nick and his family to the Cowboys basketball community,” Linder said. “I have known Nick for many years, and he is an up-and-coming coach who will impact the program in many different areas. Being a very successful prep school coach at the Asheville School and New Hampton School Prep, he has established a vast network of recruiting contacts not only here in the states but internationally.”
Whitmore has been the head coach at the Asheville School in Asheville, North Carolina since 2019. He led Asheville to three straight titles and attracted the first top-100 player in school history. Whitmore is also one of the top recruiters of international talent, attracting national team players from Turkey, Greece, Germany, France, Latvia Puerto Rico and the Netherlands.
“I want to thank Coach Linder, Director of Athletics Tom Burman, and the entire University of Wyoming community for the opportunity to be a part of the Cowboy basketball program,” Whitmore said. “Coach Linder has a track record of winning and doing things the right way. I am so excited to be a part of what he is building, and I look forward to doing my part to help this program compete at the highest possible level. My family and I are thrilled to immerse ourselves in the community, and I cannot wait to get to work!”
Whitmore is a graduate of Boise State University and earned his master’s degree from Middlebury College in Vermont. He was a student assistant while at Boise State.
