Atlanta native Yasir Rosemond, who has a dozen years of collegiate coaching experience, joined the Georgia Basketball staff as an assistant coach in May of 2014 and is beginning his third season with the Bulldogs.

“I am excited to add Yasir to our staff,” Mark Fox said when announcing Rosemond’s hiring. “He came very highly recommended by his former employers, high school coaches and the summer programs he worked with.”

“Being from Georgia myself, this is a place that’s always been on my mind as somewhere I’d like to be,” Rosemond said.

Rosemond has built a reputation for success in recruiting and player development at each stop of his career thus far. 

Most recently, he came to Georgia after two seasons at Samford, where he recruited and coached players that won the Southern Conference Freshman of the Year award for the 2013 and 2014 seasons.

Rosemond arrived at Samford in April of 2012 after spending the 2010-11 and 2011-12 seasons as an assistant coach at Seattle University under another native Atlantan and Douglass High alum, Cameron Dollar. With Rosemond on their staff, the Redhawks earned victories over Oregon State, Virginia, Pepperdine and Utah State during those two seasons.

Previously, Rosemond served five seasons at Oregon, his alma mater, under Ernie Kent. The first two of those years he was Director of Basketball Operations, the latter three as Assistant Coach. While on the Ducks’ coaching staff, Rosemond helped assemble a top-25 recruiting class in 2008 and also coached Aaron Brooks, who earned All-America honors in 2007. Brooks is beginning his eighth season in the NBA, with stints on the rosters of Houston, Phoenix, Toronto, Sacramento, Denver and Chicago.

Before joining the staff at Oregon, Rosemond coached as an assistant for two seasons at Redlands Community College in El Reno, Okla., in 2003-04 and 2004-05. He helped the Cougars advance to the NJCAA championship game during 2004. In his two seasons at Redlands, Rosemond coached three junior college All-America performers – Taj Gray, Brandon Polk and Sylvester Mayes.

As a player, Rosemond was a standout guard at Douglass High in Atlanta, the same alma mater as Jonas Hayes, his current counterpart on the Georgia staff. Highlights of his prep career include earning All-State honors as a senior and helping the Astros to the semifinals of the 1993 Class 4A state tournament.

Rosemond then played at No. 1-ranked Okaloosa-Walton Junior College in Florida for one season during 1995-96 and also attended Butler (Kan.) Community College, where he redshirted during the 1996-97 campaign.

Rosemond moved on to Oregon for two seasons. In 58 career games for the Ducks, Rosemond, averaged 4.3 points per contest and connected on 60-of-162 3-point attempts (37.0 percent). He was honored as the recipient of the team’s John Warren Award in 1999, which is given to the most inspirational player on the Oregon basketball team.     

Rosemond transferred to Division II Seattle Pacific, where he competed for the Falcons under head coach Ken Bone during his senior year.

Rosemond then enjoyed a four-season professional career in Brazil, playing for teams in Sao Paulo, Mogi das Cruzes and Hebraica while also working on his degree.

After he retired from professional basketball, Rosemond returned to Eugene and completed the final class (calculus) required to receive his bachelor’s in Sociology from Oregon in 2003.
