Brian Francis Gregory (born December 15, 1966) is an American college basketball coach and the current head men's basketball coach at South Florida. He was previously serving as a consultant to Tom Izzo at Michigan State after being let go as head coach with Georgia Tech. Prior to coaching at Georgia Tech, he was the head coach at Dayton and an assistant coach under Izzo at Michigan State.
From 1985 to 1986, Gregory attended the U.S. Naval Academy where he played on the Navy team that featured David Robinson and advanced to the Elite Eight of the NCAA Tournament. He then went to Oakland University where he was a three-time all conference selection and in 1990 was named an Academic All-American. In 1990, Gregory graduated from Oakland University with a bachelor of arts in secondary education. He went on to earn a master of arts in athletic administration at Michigan State, graduating in 1992.
On April 9, 2003, Gregory was named the head basketball coach of the Dayton Flyers.
As Flyers head coach, he led the team to the 2004 and the 2009 NCAA Tournament as well as the 2008 National Invitation Tournament. On January 14, 2008, Gregory led the Dayton Flyers to a top-14 ranking in the AP poll. This was the highest ranking for Dayton in 40 years.
He capped off the 2009–10 season by leading the Flyers to the 2010 NIT championship over North Carolina. Gregory had a 172–94 record with the Flyers over eight seasons and NCAA Tournament appearances.
He failed to make a postseason appearance in his first four years at Georgia Tech. On March 16, 2015, Georgia Tech announced that Gregory would continue as head basketball coach for another year, despite the fact he had had a conference finish higher than ninth. In the 2015–16 season, Georgia Tech improved, finishing the season 21–15 and did receive a bid to the National Invitation Tournament, their first postseason trip under Gregory. The Yellow Jackets won two games before losing in the quarterfinals.
On March 25, 2016, Georgia Tech Athletic Director Mike Bobinski announced that Gregory would not return for the 2016–17 season. His record was 76–86 overall and 27–61 in ACC play.
Gregory would serve as a consultant to his old head coach Tom Izzo at Michigan State during the 2016–17 season.
On March 14, 2017, he was hired as head coach at South Florida.
