GRANT GIBBS | Head Coach

Grant Gibbs was named head coach of the Oklahoma City Blue on August 2, 2019. He is promoted to the head coach position after spending the last two seasons as an assistant coach for the Blue. In his time on the bench, the team went 62-38 (.620) and advanced to the playoffs in both years.

Gibbs began his coaching career with the Blue after a three-year international playing career. He played in the Netherlands and Germany after graduating from Creighton with a degree in journalism.
