Barret Peery the Southern Utah Frontrunner

The Salt Lake Tribune is reporting that Barret Peery is currently the frontrunner to get the Southern Utah head coaching job. Peery is a former player and assistant at Southern Utah, and spent last year as the head coach at Indian Hills Community College, where he experienced a lot of success.

Peery, 41, is a native of Payson who attended Snow College and Southern Utah.

This season, he guided Indian Hills to a 33-4 record and a seventh-place finish at the national junior college tournament. He spent the previous three years with Jim Boylen at the University of Utah.

Before joining Boylen’s staff, Peery coached at Southern Idaho for five seasons, including three as head coach. He has also been as assistant at Snow, Utah Valley, Portland State and Southern Utah.
Southern Utah will be joining the Big Sky next season.
