Stu Sells enters his second year on the Aggies' coaching staff and first under Finkbeiner. Sells joined the college ranks after a lengthy tenure coaching high school and club basketball.
Sells was head coach at Vallivue High School in Caldwell, Idaho, where he coached former Aggie great Jenny (Gross) Brown, along with current Aggie player, first-team all-WAC guard, Devyn Christensen. In Sells' tenure as head coach at Vallivue High School from 2004-05 to 2008-09, he amassed a 97-28 record and led the Falcons to their first state tournament appearance in school history during the 2002-03 season, qualifying to state in six of the seven years during his tenure at Vallivue, serving as an assistant the previous two seasons before becoming head coach.
Sells led the Falcons to the 2006 Idaho Class 5A State Championship with a perfect 26-0 season.
One of the original founders of the Idaho Flash Girls Basketball Club, Sells also coached the club for five years, coaching and mentoring over 25 players who earned college scholarships. Sells will face four of his former players this season, as former Flash players Stacie Gross, who is the younger sister of Jenny, as well as Lauren Lenhardt, played for Boise State, while Kylie Brown plays for BYU and Kali Roche plays for Utah Valley.
In addition to coaching, Sells is also the owner of Register Graphics, a product branding company in Nampa, Idaho, that he and his wife, Sandra, have owned and operated for the past 24 years.
Sells, who went to college at Northwest Nazarene College in Nampa, Idaho, and his wife, Sandra, have two children, a son, Kyle and a daughter, Cassie.
