Mike Score is in his third season as an assistant coach with the Utes. Score was an assistant on Ray Giacoletti's staff all four years at Eastern Washington before joining him at Utah.
During Score's tenure at Eastern Washington, the Eagles went to the NCAA Tournament in 2004 and the NIT in 2003, making the school's first ever postseason appearances. Eastern also won the Big Sky Conference regular season and tournament titles in 2004. He has recruited heavily in the Pacific Northwest, Canada, and overseas.
Before his tenure at Eastern Washington, Score spent four seasons as an assistant coach at Southeastern Community College in West Burlington, Iowa. He helped guide Southeastern to the 1999-2000 National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) championship and a 34-4 record. Eight players from that squad went on to play at NCAA Division I schools, including Eastern Washington's Chris Hester, who was a two-time all-Big Sky Conference selection during the 2001-02 and 2002-03 seasons.
Southeastern was 94-41 in Score's four seasons there as he helped recruit three junior college All-America selections. Score coordinated recruiting, academics, film exchange and scouting, and was also the team's summer camp director.
Score was a student assistant coach at the University of Washington from 1994-96, beginning his association with Giacoletti, who was a full-time assistant for the Huskies. At Washington, Score was involved in video exchange and various administrative duties.
Score received two bachelor's degrees from Washington in 1996, one in business administration and another in political science.
A 1991 graduate of Everett (Wash.) High School, Score was born on Dec. 10, 1972, in Seattle, Wash. He married the former Carly Kropff on Aug. 6, 2005.
