South Florida will hire former Dayton Flyers coach Brian Gregory, according to a report Tuesday by Jon Rothstein, of CBS Sports.

Gregory spent the last year as a consultant to Michigan State head coach Tom Izzo. Prior to that, he spent five seasons as the head coach at Georgia Tech. He was fired after posting a 76-86 record with no NCAA tournament appearances.

Gregory coached at Dayton from 2003-11. He was 172-94 with two NCAA tournament appearances and one NIT championship.

South Florida plays in the American Athletic Conference. It fired coach Orlando Antigua in January. Murry Bartow filled in as the interim coach. The Bulls were 7-23 this season. They haven’t had a winning season since 2011-12 when they were in the Big East.
