I am very excited to be part of the coaching staff at Wasatch High School. I have always loved the game of basketball and I am grateful for the chance I have to share that love with Wasatch High School athletes.
After graduating from Wasatch High School in 1996 I served a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in Sao Pualo, Brazil. Upon returning from my mission I attended Utah Valley University and earned a degree in Mathematics Education. During my last year at UVU I was the student assistant coach for the girls basketball team. It was during that year that I knew I wanted to coach basketball. I also met my wife Angie during that time and now have the blessing of raising two girls, Ashlyn and Kirsten.
I obtained employment at Wasatch High School in 2002 and in 2011 I started coaching boy’s basketball. I really enjoy getting to know my students in a setting other than the classroom. In just a few short years of coaching at Wasatch I have learned a lot about the game of basketball and about coaching. I look forward to learning even more under the direction of Coach Jason Long.

Coach Hull was born in Kentucky with a Wildcat jersey on and a basketball in her hand. She has always been a student of the game starting when she would watch the Wildcats from her living room with her family trying to coach the Wildcats from the couch. She always had a hoop where she lived and would work on her shot and skills relentlessly. In high school she would spend a minimum of 2 hours shooting, 1 hour lifting, and 1 hour on footwork each day during the summer. She played on team that competed for the state tournament each year. They lost their championship game in triple overtime during one of the most rewarding and at the same time heartbreaking losses. She continued playing hoops in college and loved the years she spent playing basketball at Ricks college.
She coached a JR High team for one of her required college classes at Idaho State and fell in love with coaching basketball. After she graduated she began coaching her rival team at Henry Clay High school for 2 years before she left teaching to work for Toyota motor manufacturing. She left Toyota when a job opportunity came up at Wasatch and has been there ever since.
Her first year at Wasatch she coached with Mr. and Mrs. Pyper. She assisted with the Freshman team and learned a lot from the Hall of Fame coaches. She changed to the boys program when Coach Magnusson came to Wasatch and needed help. She worked with the Sophmore teams and assisted the Varsity squads. She coached with the boys program for 6 years. In that span Wasatch won 2 State Championships and 2 Runner up titles. She had the opportunity to coach some of the best players that have ever came through the Wasatch program in like Logan Magnusson, Josh Cottle, Darren Mahoney, Michael Brown, Mike Pelo, and many more players that went on to have successful college careers. She was able to help coach some of the top females as well like: Shalee Fackrell, Liz Turner, Rebecca Mawhinney, Kelsey Remund and Ashlyn Coleman to name a few. Her specialty is defense, shooting, and guard play. During her years with the boys they always had the top scoring defense in the state by holding opponents to 45 or less.
When Coach Magnusson left the boys program Coach Hull returned to the girls program to work once again with Coach Pyper. After his retirement she worked with current BYU coach Ray Stewart. She also coached the last 2 years with Coach Hayter. She feels very blessed to have had the opportunity to work with so many great coaches and has learned so much from each of the coach’s strengths. She continually is a student of the game reading books from her favorite coaches and going to clinics. She may have a day where she is at school and coaching 3 games until 9:00 and go home to watch her Wildcats get another victory before she can sleep soundly.
Coach Hull’s investment in basketball is a lifetime pursuit of being a player, coach, and fan. She cares about her players and will help them to become the best they possibly can as an individual and most importantly as a teammate. Her philosophy of coaching has been to develop the person as much as the player. To teach her players to strive for excellence while being a great teammate. She is excited to continue her career with the boys this season and share her passion and knowledge for the game.
