Rose was the head coach at Purdue the last time the team reached the Final Four (1980). He spent two seasons with the Boilermakers, posting a 50-18 record. He also led Purdue to a B1G regular season title in 1979.

Purdue hired Gene Keady following Rose’s departure.

After leaving Purdue, Rose spent six years at South Florida. In that time, he guided the Bulls to three NIT appearances and compiled a 106-69 record.

Rose started his coaching career at Transylvania, where he coached from 1964-75. The Pioneers were 160-57 in that span.

In more than two decades as a head coach, Rose had a 388-162 record with 5 NIT appearances and a pair of Final Four berths.
