RIP Boyd Grant. Condolences to his family, to include his extended family of players who were blessed to play for him. One of the greatest coaches in Fresno St. history. For those around in ’83 who can forget the NIT Championship won in NY, and the following parade in Fresno celebrating our Bulldogs? His defeat of Houston and Akeem Olajuwon? A very sad day for all Fresno St. fans.
