“I’m excited for the next challenge in my career and chance to reunite with Coach Steve Prohm at Iowa State University,” Kane wrote on Twitter. “However, leaving Flyer Nation and its rich basketball tradition was an extremely tough decision. Getting to work with Coach Prohm again was one of the few unique opportunities I could not pass up. I am very appreciative to the University of Dayton, Dr. (Eric) Spina, Neil Sullivan and Coach Grant for the privilege to coach at such a first-class program. I also want to thank the entire Dayton staff and most importantly the players for their hard work all year. Coach Grant is one of the best coaches and people in college basketball. I know he will continue to lead the Flyers to success!”
Kane met Grant when he was a student at the University of Florida, and Grant hired Kane as a graduate assistant at Virginia Commonwealth in 2006.
