Mike Grant Head Men's Golf Coach
Mike Grant, the 2008 Big South Coach of the Year, begins his 11th season at the helm of the Highlanders. Prior to the 2008-09 campaign, Grant directed both the men and women’s golf programs. This season marks the sixth year he will coach just the men’s team.
In 2003, Grant took over a men’s program that hadn’t finished higher than fifth in the Big South Championship since joining the league in 1984-85. Since then, Grant directed his team to a program-best third-place finish in 2008, fourth in 2007 and 2013, and four fifth-place showings.
...
Under the direction of Grant, Eklund blossomed in his junior year.
...
Grant guided Eklund to an outstanding season as a redshirt sophomore. Eklund, Big South Men’s Golfer of the Week for Oct. 22, led the team with a 73.2 stroke average, sixth-best in the conference.
...
In 2009-10, Grant led the men’s club to three top-5 finishes, including a season-best, second-place showing at the Frank Landrey Invitational. To go along with their finishes near the top of the leaderboard, the Highlanders also tallied six top-10 showings.
During that season, Grant directed senior Kyle Bailey, who recorded the seventh-best scoring average (74.37) in the Big South and Weston Eklund, who tallied a 75.33 average, was 20th in the league.
...
In 2007-08, his Highlanders placed a school-best third at the conference tournament, earning Grant his first Coach of the Year honor.
...
Grant has overseen numerous program firsts, including the first tournament win for the women’s program and the first time the men’s team had held the overnight lead at the Big South Championship.
During his tenure, Grant has coached nine (seven men, two women) Big South All-Conference players, one Big South Freshman of the Year and guided his student-athletes to a pair of individual medalist honors. The Radford men’s team has captured multiple regular-season tournament titles under his guidance.
...
A 1991 graduate of Virginia Commonwealth University with a B.S. Degree in Community and Public Affairs, Grant competed professionally on the PGA Tour, Canadian Tour and Nike Tour from 1995-1998. The Highlight of his playing career came in 1994, when he competed in the U.S. Open at Oakmont Country Club.
In the summer of 2005, Grant made another qualifying run at the U.S. Open, getting as far as Sectionals before falling just shy of making the field.
Before assuming his position as the head coach at Radford, Grant was a teaching professional at Thorn Springs Golf Club in the New River Valley, a position he held for a year. He also spent three and a half years (1998-2001) as the Assistant Golf Professional at Boonsboro Country Club in Lynchburg, Va.
Prior to turning pro in 1995, Grant served as the Assistant Professional at Flossmoor Country Club in Chicago, Ill. and as the Assistant Golf Coach at VCU.
Grant and his wife Tara reside in Radford.

John Gagliardi's retirement announcement at St. John's as college football's all-time winningest coach Monday, Nov. 19, leads to speculation that alumnus Mike Grant could succeed the legendary coach.
...
Grant, 55, who has coached Eden Prairie High School to seven large-school state football championships in 21 years and seeks an eighth title Friday against Lakeville North at the Metrodome, wasn't aware of Gagliardi's retirement until informed by the Pioneer Press on Monday morning.
...
Grant was a tight end for Gagliardi and set what was then the single-season school record for receptions by a tight end -- 11 -- back when St. John's predominantly ran the football.
...
After graduation, Grant spent two seasons (1987-88) as an assistant to Gagliardi.
...
Grant said Gagliardi's retirement announcement made for a sad day.
"(But) with one week to go in my season, it's hard for me to think about anything else but trying to beat Lakeville North right now," Grant said.
Grant, who also is activities director at Eden Prairie, loves his career at the suburban Minneapolis school, and it would take a significant commitment from St. John's to get him to leave.
...
"In fact, Mike Grant, who was my tight end, and I were making up plays in the huddle.
