Grigsby led the Blue Raiders to an overall third-place finish in the final Division I rankings in 2009-10 -- the highest overall ranking in the history of the cycling program. Lindsey Wilson finished 10th in the same standings in 2010-11.

The rankings combine all four disciplines in collegiate racing.

Grigsby led the Blue Raiders to a third-place finish at the cyclo-cross national championships and a fifth-place finish at the mountain-bike nationals.

Grigsby also had his team place in the top 10 of the road-race nationals with a 10th place finish to round out the national results.

Following last season's results, Grigsby has recruited a stellar third class to build on last season's success.

Grigsby is a USA Cycling certified Elite (Level 1) coach and is one of the few power certified cycling coaches in the United States.

The Lindsey Wilson head coaching position is his first at the collegiate ranks.

Grigsby has more than 10 years experience coaching at the professional level including founding everybodysbikecoach.com, an Internet based cycling coaching service.

Grigsby coached Tiago Depaula, one of 20 athletes he trains, to the 2007 World Championships Criterium in Las Vegas.

In addition to his coaching, Grigsby is a former road, mountain, and bmx racer with wins in the Expert category at the 12-hours of Tsali in North Carolina and the 13-hour Bakers Dozen endurance mountain bike race in South Carolina, as well as runner up at the Kentucky State Championships and NBL Southeast Regional Championships in BMX. In addition to his many certifications in coaching Grigsby regularly attends seminars and workshops at the Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs and Strength and Conditioning symposiums at ETSU in Tennessee.
