Austin Grimes just completed his first season with the Greyhounds as Assistant Coach.

He helped UIndy finish 7-5 overall against a tough 2017 slate, including a marquee 9-4 win at No. 5 Lindenwood. Three of the Hounds' losses came against top-11 ranked programs, and each loss was by just two goals.

Grimes helped the Greyhounds finish with the third-best scoring defense in Division II, allowing only seven goals per game.

He came to the Circle City from Oberlin College, where he spent the 2016 season as the school's defensive coordinator. During his year with Oberlin, the Yeoman held opponents to a .279 shot percentage and caused 120 turnovers, fourth-best in the conference.

Prior to his stint in Ohio, Grimes helped his alma mater, Wheeling Jesuit, as an assistant coach for three years while completing his Master of Business Administration.

The Cardinals had a top-20 ranked defense each of his three seasons on the sidelines, including the 2014 campaign when Wheeling Jesuit ranked 10th in defense, second in man-down defense, and first in clearing percentage among all Division II programs. Grimes also mentored six All-Eastern College Athletic Conference (ECAC) honorees and an honorable mention All-American.
