Brian Gregory Offered Georgia Tech Basketball Coaching Job, According To Report

Brian Gregory, head coach of Dayton Flyers basketball, has been offered the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets job according to Sports By Brooks [ht From The Rumble Seat]. He’s been up for a number of jobs as of late, including the recently vacated Missouri Tigers job — read a very extensive Gregory profile at Mizzou blog Rock M Nation, matter of fact.

He’s not the most widely known name Tech could offer, but he’s had success at a small school, spent more than a decade as either a Tom Izzo assistant or associate, and played at Navy, thus fulfilling the requirement that all persons tied to Georgia Tech coaching jobs have Navy affiliations.

He’s gone 172-94 in his eight seasons at Dayton, recording two March Madness bids, a NCAA Tournament win, and a NIT title. His team was eliminated from the 2011 NIT by Bobby Cremins’ Charleston Cougars, calling the team well-coached before the matchup, so there’s another thin semi-Tech-related association if you’d like one.

Based on his bio, I can’t spot any apparent Southeastern connections in his background.
