Former Holy Cross basketball coach Brandon Grammer is expected to become Hughes’ next basketball coach.
Hughes’ sporting director Andrew Mueller confirmed Grammer’s appointment to The Enquirer on Friday afternoon. The school announced this in a press release.
“I’m proud of what we’ve achieved in my time at HC, but the opportunity to coach a great program and teach at a great school that cannot be missed,” Grammer said in a tweet.
Holy Cross Sporting Director Anne Julian confirmed that Grammer had resigned as head coach for the Indians at the NKY Tribune, saying: “We are looking for a replacement for Coach Grammer and we are delighted with the pool of candidates.”
The news comes less than two months after Hughes announced that Kenny Satterfield, former University of Cincinnati basketball star, would become the next Headboy basketball coach.
Grammer has set a record of 38-42 in the past three seasons. Holy Cross was 14-10 years old last year, reaching the quarter-finals of the Ninth Region, and Holy Cross returns as one of the top players in Northern Kentucky with Junior Guard Jacob Meyer, a Division I candidate.
Prior to joining Holy Cross in May 2018, he was an assistant at Holmes for two years and head coach at Grant County from 2014-2016, where he set a 39-51 record and racked up two 32nd district championships.
