Men's coach has accumulated 83 victories in four years

Monday, February 24, 2014 01:31 pm
Indiana Tech announced Monday that this season will be men's basketball coach Al Grushkin's last with the program. Grushkin has decided to leave the Warriors to pursue other opportunities. In four years, Grushkin has gone 83-42, including three straight 20-win seasons.

“Resigning has been something I've been considering,” said Grushkin in a statement. “My father passed away over a year ago, and since that time I've wanted to get back closer to my family. Overall, it's been a good four-year ride, and I'd like to thank President (Arthur E. Snyder) and the Indiana Tech family for the opportunity here.

“I wish everyone well.”

The majority of Grushkin's family resides in Texas.

Grushkin's coaching career has taken him all over the country. He was an NBA scout and a consultant for the Memphis Grizzlies in the two years prior to his taking the Indiana Tech job. He held a six-year head coaching stint at the University of Incarnate Word and has coached at Division I programs Arkansas State, Arkansas, Tulsa, Idaho State and UT-San Antonio, among others.

While with Indiana Tech, Grushkin led the program to national rankings in each of the first three years, including a high of No. 7 in the country during the 2011-12 season.

The program has also shown off-the-court improvement, with the team sporting nearly a 3.0 GPA this season, including five players with a GPA at 3.6 or above.

Heading into this season, Indiana Tech has had five WHAC Academic All-Conference players and three NAIA scholar athletes during Grushkin's reign.

This season, Indiana Tech sports a 16-14 overall record with the Warriors set to travel to No. 9 Davenport on Wednesday in the first round of the WHAC Tournament.
