After 21 seasons and more than 300 victories as the head coach of the Bucknell softball program, Bucknell Athletics Hall-of-Famer Terrie Grieb turned her attention full-time to her administrative duties in the fall of 2000.
In her role as Associate Director of Athletics for Business and Team Services, Grieb is responsible for all accounting and business services and the department’s overall budget and finance. She oversees purchasing, ticket operations, team transportation and lodging, human resources and the department’s clerical and secretarial staff. Grieb also oversees the department’s Student-Athlete Advisory Committee.
Grieb was a highly regarded head coach at Bucknell from 1978-2000. She began her tenure with the Bison as the head volleyball and softball coach and assistant women’s basketball coach. Grieb holds the distinction of being the only woman in Bucknell history to coach three varsity sports in one season when she directed the softball, women’s basketball and volleyball teams in 1980-81.
Excluding one sabbatical season, Grieb was the only coach Bucknell Softball had known. During her tenure, she was honored as conference coach of the year six times, collecting her final honor after the 1999 season. She garnered top mentor honors three times while a member of the Patriot League — a feat equaled by just one other league coach. Grieb compiled a 307-324-2 mark during her 21 years, including a Patriot League title in 1997. Grieb was also the first head coach of the Bucknell women’s volleyball program, directing the squad from 1978 through the 1984 season. Over those seven years, the Bison compiled a 90-96-1 mark, capped by a 22-11 season in 1983.
After two seasons as the assistant women’s basketball coach, Grieb directed the women’s baskteball team to a 7-12 mark in 1980-81. Following that season, she served as an assistant for the program until 1991.
Grieb began her administrative duties as assistant athletic director for business services in 1997, establishing her relationship with the University’s finance, procurement and payroll offices. A native of Loganton, Pa., Grieb graduated from Lock Haven University in 1977 with a bachelor’s degree in health, physical education and recreation. She was a standout basketball and softball player for the Eagles.
