Clemson basketball coach Brad Brownell has hired Wichita State’s Earl Grant to join his staff. Grant is a native of North Charleston and has been on the Shcokers staff for the past three seasons. Whicita State is coached by former Winthrop head coach Greg Marshall.
“I have known Earl Grant since he was in high school,” Marshall said. “I recruited him in high school and junior college, and finally got a chance to hook up six years ago when I hired him at Winthrop.
“He is the type of person I want to be associated with, and happens to be a fine basketball coach, as well. We wish him success in his career and hope he and his family continue to prosper.”
Earlier in the day former Tulane coach and Denmark native Dave Dickerson turned down an offer from Clemson to take a job at Ohio State.
