Coach Gregg Nibert’s spent 28 years as the Head Coach of the Presbyterian College men’s basketball team. The winningest coach in the program’s history, Nibert led the Blue Hose to over 400 wins during his 28 years at the helm. Nibert saw the Presbyterian College Bluehose through the transition from NAIA to Division II to Division I and the Blue Hose were competitive early after making the jump as they registered wins over a 20th-ranked Cincinnati team, as well as, Auburn and Wake Forest. Through the transition to Division I, Nibert let his team through a couple seasons filled with tremendous opponents like Duke, Kansas, Marquette, Georgia Tech,
Nibert, a 1979 graduate of Marietta College, began his coaching career at Rice University where he served as an assistant coach under Mike Schuler, who would later earn NBA Coach of the Year honors with the Portland Trailblazers. In 1981, Nibert moved with fellow Owl aide Butch Estes to Clinton, S.C., when Estes accepted Presbyterian’s head coaching job. The Blue Hose would record a 57-35 ledger over the next three seasons, including a pair of 20-win campaigns.
Nibert then moved to Furman University as a part-time assistant coach under Paladin mentor Gene Davis. One year later, Estes took Davis’ spot at the helm of Furman’s program and Nibert was shifted to the full-time assistant’s post, a slot he would man until being named Presbyterian’s 17th head basketball coach on April 26, 1989.
While a student-athlete at Marietta, Nibert, a native of Grove City, Ohio, earned Most Improved Player honors during his junior season and was named the team’s Most Valuable Player following his senior campaign.
Nibert is married to the former Peggy Harling of Simpsonville, S.C., and the couple has two sons, Shaun and Van.
Coach Nibert and his wife, Peggy, have something in their hearts that is bigger than basketball. In
