WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — Get accustomed to seeing Grady Eifert in West Lafayette a little longer. Eifert is set to join Matt Painter's staff as a graduate assistant for the 2019-2020 season. The former walk-on turned starter and captain will fill the role that DJ Byrd is leaving behind. 

Byrd is now the Director of Basketball Operations at Mercer, on former Purdue assistant Greg Gary's new staff. 

Eifert starred in a supporting role in 2018-2019 for the Boilermakers, contributing five and a half points and just over five rebounds a game, while averaging 25 minutes.
