The UD Flyers have a new head coach. The University of Dayton has selected Oklahoma City Thunder assistant coach Anthony Grant to lead the men’s basketball team.

Grant is a former Flyer himself, having played for the team in the 1980s.

Grant follows Archie Miller, who coached the Flyers for six seasons. Grant was head coach with Virginia Commonwealth and Alabama before working with Oklahoma City.

Also, Miami has hired Purdue assistant Jack Owens as its 27th basketball coach. Owens has been an assistant at Purdue for nine seasons, including the past six as associate head coach.

The RedHawks fired John Cooper on March 10th after they went 11-21.
