Daniel Grieves was named head basketball coach in spring 2021. Coach Grieves, who led the Rocks to the 2011 4A state title, begins his first season in charge this fall. SSC’s all-time leading scorer, Grieves was nationally ranked and scored 2,443 points with the school during his playing days. Grieves is the only player at SSC with 2,000 points, 500 rebounds, 300 assists, and 100 steals. He played for legendary coach Jay Ladner.

Grieves joined the US Air Force Academy to play basketball; however, he stayed one season and then returned to play for Pearl River Community College. After playing one season at Louisiana-Monroe, he earned his undergraduate degree in just three years. The final season of his college career was played at Southeastern Louisiana University where he was reunited with Jay Ladner and earned his master’s degree in Organizational Communication/Kinesiology.

Grieves comes from a basketball family. His father, Danny Grieves, played basketball at Peoria Central (IL) and later at St. Petersburg (FL) Junior College before transferring to Monmouth College (IL). He later moved into coaching with several successful stints in Mississippi including a state championship with Morton High School and a 106-19 record in four years at Gulfport High School. Danny is presently the varsity basketball coach at Metamora HS (IL). His mother, Kim, is a former All-American high school player from Buckeye, LA, who was the captain of the Northwestern State women’s team. Kim went on to have a successful high school coaching career of her own. She is currently coaching at Metamora Grade School (IL).

He looks forward to sharing his success from his playing career with the Rock-A-Chaws. Daniel and his wife, Caroline, reside on the MS Gulf Coast.
