Please join us in welcoming Rich Grant as the new Head Men's Basketball Coach for your PBSC Panthers!
Coach Grant comes to us from Broward College where he spent time as the top Assistant under Coach Anthony Anderson. During his tenure, Broward Basketball went 16-12, beating two top-10 nationally ranked teams. Six Broward players received All-Conference honors under Coach Grant's supervision, which included: Deandre Pickney, C.J. Roberts, D'Rell Roberts, Rodney Ray, Jongkor Ajonga, & Bralyn James. As the lead recruiter for Broward, Coach Grant was able to land several NCAA Division I transfers. On the court, Coach Grant implemented a new defensive system which led to a low offensive scoring margin in the state of Florida.
Additionally, Coach Grant was the Head Basketball Coach for Team Knight Florida 17 and under team. He also spent time at New Mexico Military Academy as an Assistant where he was again lauded for his defensive scheme that led to a top-10 defensive ranking and nearly propelled the team to a playoff spot after being projected to finish last in the conference during the pre-season polls.
Coach Grant served as the Director of Basketball Operations for Wagner College from 2015-2016. His team was regular season champions and earned a bid to the NIT tournament where they took down #1 overall seed St. Bonaventure. Additionally, Coach Grant successfully managed a rather large budget, created scouting reports, and supervised three undergraduate assistants.
Coach Grant will officially take over on August 1.
