Travis Ford has finalized his coaching staff, as he announced this week that Bill Grier will join Oklahoma State as an assistant coach.

“I couldn’t be more excited to have someone with such an impressive reputation and coaching resume joining the Cowboy family,” Ford said. “He’s always been regarded as a top-notch recruiter and tactician of the game.”

Grier spent eight years as a head coach at San Diego, where he went 117-144 and reached the 2008 NCAA tournament. Prior to that, he was an assistant at Gonzaga from 1992-2007, where he played a major role in the growth of the program to the national level.

“I am very excited to join Travis Ford’s coaching staff and become a part of the Cowboy family,” Grier said. “It’s a tremendous honor to be part of a program with such great history and support and I look forward to competing in the prestigious Big 12 Conference.”

Grier will join Butch Pierre and former Houston head coach James Dickey on Ford’s staff.
