No stranger to replacing coaching legends, Michael Grant arrives at Coppin looking to meet the challenge of reviving Coppin's reputation as a feared competitor on the hardwood
Grant brings solid coaching credentials to the task. He came to Coppin from Stillman College, a National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) Division II school in Tuscaloosa, Ala., where he amassed a 100-73 won-loss record as head coach from 2006 to 2014.
Before Stillman College, Grant was head coach at NCAA Division I Southern University in Louisiana where as head coach from 2003 -2005 he had a less favorable won/loss record of 26-31.
He came to Southern from Central State University, a National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA) school in Wilberforce, Ohio, where his won-loss record during his 1996 to 2003 tenure was 126-94. Grant now looks to lead Coppin State back to the NCAA Tournament, where they haven't been since 2008.
Coppin State Athletic Director Derrick Ramsey has directed Grant to recruit in the Baltimore area first, then around the rest of the state before seeking airplane tickets to scour the rest of the nation for talent.

For Grant, reversing that trend is high on his to-do list.

The style of basketball will be a bit different, according to Grant.
"No one in the [Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference] MEAC will be able to play the way that I play," said Grant.

Michael Grant has taken the head men's basketball coaching position at Coppin State University, and Stillman College is working toward naming a successor.

Grant went 100-73 in six seasons at Stillman, taking the Tigers to an 18-10 record in 2013-14. The Tigers led the conference in assists, blocked shots, scoring offense and 3-point shots made.

"It's a great opportunity for me to build another program," Grant said of the Division I program in Baltimore. "This will be the fourth program that I've had an opportunity to build over from the ground up.

"I put six good years in here. It gave me an opportunity to settle down and establish the program the way it needs to be established. I felt like this year was the time for me to take on another challenge. We're going to continue to run the program (at Coppin State) the same way that we've always done and bring in the talent to succeed at that level."

Grant, who previously coached at Central State and Southern University, said more than 300 coaches had applied to replace him at Stillman.

"That speaks volumes about where the program has come from, because when I took over Stillman they were 1-27," he said. "They probably had 25 or 30 applicants when I applied for the job. To have over 300, that speaks a lot to where the program has come.

"The last I've heard, they've got it narrowed down quite a bit."

Paul Bryant, athletics director at Stillman, could not be reached for comment.

Mortimer Neufville, Coppin State's president, also had praise for Grant's job in developing Stillman players as students.

"There are two things that we were looking for in our men's basketball coach," Neufville said at a news conference introducing Grant.
