Chad Dollar has joined Brian Gregory’s coaching staff at Georgia Tech.
Dollar played at Douglass High School, where his dad, Don, coached. Chad played three seasons at South Florida before transferring to Milligan.
He has spent the past 12 seasons as an assistant coach, including on NIT champion Wichita State this most recent season. He is Gregory’s first announced hire.
“The chance to join coach Gregory, one of the top coaches in the country, and to come back home is an unbelievable opportunity for me,” Dollar said in a statement. “I look forward to helping the Georgia Tech program get to the place where it needs to be in the ACC and the nation.”
His brother, Cameron, is the head coach at the University of Seattle and starred at UCLA.
