Former Cyclone Great Grayer leaving Iowa State


AMES (KWWL)-- A former Cyclone Basketball great is leaving Ames.

Former Iowa State All-American Jeff Grayer has decided to return to Michigan to be closer to his family.

Grayer was originally hired to be an assistant men's basketball coach by former head coach Greg McDermott last spring. When Fred Hoiberg was hired as head coach in April, he offered Grayer the opportunity to serve in an administrative capacity on his staff rather than as one of his three full-time assistants. 
"Jeff wants to be able to recruit and be on the floor coaching the players," Hoiberg said.  "Unfortunately, NCAA rules only allow us to have three assistant coaches."
Grayer starred for the Cyclones in the mid-80's.
