Jesse Parker Named Utah State Men's Basketball Director of Operations

Thursday, May. 30, 2013

Jesse Parker, USU's director of operations for men's basketball
Jesse Parker was named the director of basketball operations at USU. Coach Morrill made the announcement May 29.

Utah State's [University] head men's basketball coach Stew Morrill announced Wednesday [May 28, 2013] the hiring of Jesse Parker as the program's director of basketball operations.


“Jesse has prepared himself for this opportunity and I am extremely comfortable that he can handle the position,” Morrill said. “He is an Aggie in every sense, and we are delighted to have him expand his role within our program.”


As the director of basketball operations, Parker is responsible for scheduling all team meetings, meals and travel, helping coordinate practices, disseminate information and act as the liaison between the coaching staff and support staff, coordinating recruiting visits, managing program’s equipment, supervising and coordinating student managers and assist with day-to-day activities of the coaching staff.  Parker also coordinates the annual summer Stew Morrill Basketball Camps.


A native of Kamas, Utah, Parker has been the Aggies’ team manager for the past four seasons, handling practice set up, equipment and uniforms, as well as various other practice and game day responsibilities.


“I am humbled by the opportunity Coach Morrill has given me to take over as director of basketball operations,” Parker said. “I have great respect for Coach Morrill and the program he has built here at Utah State and I’m extremely honored to be a part of it. Aggie basketball has been a large part of my college experience here at Utah State, and I am excited to officially be joining the basketball staff and begin my duties as director of basketball operations.”


During Parker’s time with USU, the Aggies have won two Western Athletic Conference titles and made two trips to the NCAA Tournament.


Parker replaces Cody Fueger, who recently accepted a similar role at BYU.


Utah State finished the 2012-13 season with a 21-10 overall record and an 11-7 league ledger in its eighth and final season in the WAC, before joining the Mountain West for the 2013-14 season. USU is one of just five teams in the country to win at least 21 games in each of the past 14 seasons along with Duke, Gonzaga, Kansas, and Syracuse. Furthermore, it is the 23rd time in school history that USU has won 20 or more games in a season. 


Fans can follow the Aggie men’s basketball program on Twitter. USU fans can also follow the Utah State athletic program on Twitter or on Facebook at Utah State University Athletics.
