USF reportedly eyeing former Georgia Tech coach for men’s basketball position
Multiple reports have linked former Georgia Tech men’s basketball coach Brian Gregory to USF’s current opening.
First reported by ESPN’s Jeff Goodman, Gregory, 50, spent this season as a consultant for Michigan State, the same school he began his coaching career with.
“You move forward and hopefully there’s a really good opportunity where we can build something special,” Gregory told mlive.com last month. “Because I thought we were on the cusp of that at Georgia Tech.
“But sometimes in this profession, you don’t always get to finish the job. And I totally get that. But hopefully, on this next one … we’ll see.”
Gregory was fired from Georgia Tech with a 76-78 record after five seasons. Prior to Georgia Tech, he managed a 172-94 record and two NCAA Tournament berths in eight years at Dayton.
USF will close out its season in the AAC tournament with UConn first on the schedule Thursday night.
According to Joey Knight of the Tampa Bay Times, athletic director Mark Harlan is expected to make a hiring decision soon after the conclusion of the season.
