UVU will continue its road trip by taking on No. 12 Wyoming Saturday night in Laramie.

KC Rock enters his sixth season as the associate head coach at Utah Valley University.

Rock helped lead the Wolverines to their most successful season a couple of years ago as they broke a school record with wins in a season as UVU finished 2008-09 with an 11-3 record. UVU also posted a 4-1 record in the WWC, which was good enough for a second place finish in conference.

Rock returns to the state of Utah, where he spent his high school days, after four seasons as an assistant on the University of Wyoming's wrestling staff.

Prior to his stint at Wyoming, Rock spent two seasons coaching at his alma-mater, Boise State.

While a wrestler at Boise State, Rock was a two-time National Qualifier. He was the Pac-10 Champion at 125-pounds in 2000 and was named the Pac-10 Tournament's Most Outstanding wrestler after pinning all four of his opponents, including top seed Michael Kawamura of Arizona State in the finals.

Prior to his time at Boise State, Rock was an All-American at Ricks College in Rexburg, Idaho.

Rock prepped at Morgan High School in Morgan, Utah, where he was a three-time Utah State Champion and High School All-American while wrestling for his father, John.

Rock earned degree in Kinesiology from Boise State in 2001.

He and his wife, Darelyn, have three children; Keller, Emery and Amelia.
