Coach Grier enters his third season at Providence Day after leading the Chargers to the 2021 NCISAA Division 1 State Championship. The championship was the 3rd in PD history and the 5th in Grier’s head coaching career.
Coach Grier’s overall record is 103-21 in 11 seasons with 5 state championships, 1 state runner up, and 3 state semi-final appearances. He began his career at Davidson Day where he started the program from scratch and went 64-9 with 4 state titles in 6 years. Grier then took over at Oceanside Collegiate Academy in Mt. Pleasant, South Carolina, where he served as Head Coach and Athletic Director. Prior to his arrival at Oceanside, the Landsharks had never won a game. In 3 years, Grier led Oceanside to a 27-7 record, a Regional Championship, 2 playoff berths and an appearance in the Lower State Championship Game (state semi-finals). Grier took over the PD program in the Spring of 2020 and led the Chargers to a 4-2 mark, the Big South Conference Championship and an appearance in the state-semi-finals in the Covid-shortened season. That was the first time PD had beaten each of our 3 Charlotte rivals in the same regular season since at least 2003. In 2021, the Chargers again swept our local conference rivals in winning our 2nd straight Big South title, earned the #1 seed in the Division 1 playoffs and finished the season with our first State Championship since 2011.
Grier’s ability to develop student-athletes is best reflected in nearly 80 of his players moving on to play at the collegiate level including several in the SEC, ACC, Big 12, Ivy League, and Service Academies (Army and Navy). Grier specializes in teaching Quarterbacks. His son Will played QB for his first Davidson Day teams where he was the 2-time NC Gatorade Player of the Year, a 3-time All American and the national high school player of the year. Will had an outstanding college career at Florida and West Virginia where he finished 4th in the Heisman voting before being drafted in the 3rd round by the Carolina Panthers. Currently, Will plays for the Dallas Cowboys. Another of Grier’s QB’s was Sam Hartman who is entering his 4th year as a starter at Wake Forest where he is one of the top QBs in all of college football. In his 11 years as a Head Coach, each of his starting QBs has been named All-Conference, All-State and/or All-American and each have gone on to play college football (Florida/West Virginia, Furman, Wake Forest, Drake, South Carolina, Charlotte).
Grier graduated from Charlotte Latin and then played Quarterback at both University of Richmond and East Carolina where he learned under some of the best football minds in the game including Kevin Gilbride, Mark Richt and Steve Logan. While starting a family in Charlotte and working in business, he earned his MBA from Queens University. He started coaching as a passion hobby in the 90’s at numerous camps and as an assistant coach at Western Guilford High School, Charlotte Latin and SouthLake Christian before taking on his first head coach position at Davidson Day in 2010. It wasn’t until Grier took the job at Oceanside that he became a full-time coach. He has served in numerous all-star games including Assistant Coach in the 2015 Army All-American Bowl in San Antonio, Head Coach of the 2016 Adidas Freshman All-American Bowl in Naples, Florida, Head Coach in the 2017 Army All-American Bowl, and head coach of the 2018 Carolina Bowl played at the University of North Carolina.
Coach Grier is a Charlotte native. He has been married to his wife Nila for 13 years and is the father of four sons, Will (26), Nash (24), Hayes (21), and Hank (3).
