>>>Ten moments: A look back at career of Anthony Grant
“This is unbelievable for me,” Grant said. “I don’t have words to describe how excited I am to be here. Usually, you want to write down your thoughts and deliver a concise message. As I prepared to come here today for the press conference, I couldn’t begin to put it all together, so let me express my appreciation to Neil (Sullivan), Dr. (Eric F.) Spina for giving me this opportunity. You guys were first class. As an alum, I sit back and always try to watch what’s going on with UD, if I can catch pieces of games or just watch the score. I’ve been extremely proud of what this program has been able to accomplish. I want to also congratulate coach Miller and his staff for doing an outstanding job here. I told the players when we met I’m extremely proud of what they’ve been able to accomplish.”
