Brian Gregory Agrees To Take Georgia Tech Basketball Job, According To Report

According to a report in the Dayton Daily News, Dayton coach Brian Gregory has agreed to become the head coach at Georgia Tech and will announce his decision later today in a news conference.

Gregory has been head coach of the Flyers since 2003 and has a record of 172-94 over that time. He has led the Flyers to the NCAA Tournament twice and won an NIT championship in 2010. Gregory served as an assistant coach to Tom Izzo at Michigan State from 1999-2003 before joining Dayton.

Georgia Tech reportedly interviewed Richmond coach Chris Mooney on Sunday before he signed a 10-year extension to remain with the Spiders after taking them to the sweet 16 this season.

Gregory will face a challenge of pumping life into a Georgia Tech program that has been up and down the last few seasons. With the team struggling and attendance sagging, Tech AD Dan Radakovich elected to replace Paul Hewitt who had been at the school for 11 seasons.

Tech will split next seasons home games between Philips Arena and Gwinnett Arena while the brand new McCamish Pavilion is constructed replacing Alexander Memorial Coliseum.
