Grant Swallows named assistant coach at TTU

Former record-setting Golden Eagle quarterback Grant Swallows is the newest addition to the Tennessee Tech football coaching staff, being named Thursday, July 20 by acting head coach Doug Malone.

Swallows, 27, will work with Tech's quarterbacks in the 2006 season. He officially begins his new position on Tuesday, Aug. 1.

A native of Livingston, Swallows was a standout prep player at Livingston Academy, then rewrote many of the Tech passing records as a 4-year letterman and 3-year starter for the Golden Eagles.

Following his playing career from 1998 through 2001, he spent the 2002 season as a student assistant on the Tech coaching staff working with the tight ends, then took an assistant coaching position at Livingston Academy.

As receivers coach, he helped Coach Matt Eldridge's teams post a 3-year 28-10 overall record, including a 10-5 record in 2005 that culminated in the Wildcats winning the TSSAA Class 3A state championship. He was also an assistant baseball coach at LA during that period.

He earned his bachelor's degree from TTU in 2001 in English-journalism, and added his master's degree in instructional leadership in 2006 from Tennessee Tech.
