She was also an assistant coach at Xavier University for two years before heading to Le Moyne. Grimes coached for six years with the University of Albany Great Danes In the America East Conference from 2010 to 2016 and was an assistant coach and recruiting coordinator with the Syracuse University Orange from 2005 to 2010.

This is a great hire. Mary is a proven winner with a history of recruiting the best and brightest student-athletes. What she did at Albany, Syracuse, Xavier, and Le Moyne are true testaments to her ability to be a successful coach at Binghamton. We're excited to welcome Mary to campus and have her get started developing relationships with the team and hit the ground running. - Binghamton University Director of Athletics, Eugene Marshall, Jr.
