SAN DIEGO - San Diego State women's basketball head coach Stacie Terry announced the hiring Monday of Nick Grant as an assistant coach. The Arlington, Texas, native arrives on Montezuma Mesa after spending three seasons at Texas A&M, including the past two as video coordinator.

"Nick is going to make an excellent addition to our staff," Terry said. "He has had the opportunity to work with two great head coaches (Gary Blair of Texas A&M and Kim Mulkey of Baylor) and brings a wealth of knowledge from the Southeastern Conference to our program."

During his tenure with the Aggies, Grant was part of a program that made three consecutive NCAA Tournament appearances, highlighted by a run to the Elite Eight in 2014. In addition to the recording, breakdown and analysis of all practices and games, Grant's responsibilities included serving as a liaison between the players and coaching staff.

Prior to his appointment as video coordinator, Grant was a strength and conditioning intern with the Texas A&M athletic department for the 2011-12 season, working full-time with the women's basketball team while assisting with the baseball squad. He also aided the Aggies' recruiting efforts in the summer of 2012, evaluating women's basketball talent at the AAU level.

"I am extremely grateful for the opportunity to join Coach Terry and the SDSU basketball family," Grant said. "This program is doing some amazing things, and I am very excited to get started and help us reach our goals."

Grant received his bachelor of arts degree in communication from Baylor in 2010. While on the Waco campus, he served as a team manager with the women's basketball squad from 2006-08, assisting with guards on fundamentals and skill work. During those two seasons, the Lady Bears amassed 53 victories and twice reached the second round of the NCAA Tournament. Upon graduation, Grant remained at Baylor, working with seven scholarship programs in the weight room as an athletic performance intern during the 2010-11 campaign.

"Skill development is one of Nick's strong suits and he has experience training some professional athletes," Terry said. "He has also established great recruiting ties in the state of Texas."

Grant replaces Aisha Veasley, who served on Terry's initial Aztec staff during the 2013-14 campaign.

"Aisha has decided to get married and start a family," Terry said. "We appreciate all that she has done for our program and she will be greatly missed."
