Jeffrey Grayer (born December 17, 1965) is a retired American basketball player. A 6 feet 5 inches (1.96 m) and 200 pounds (91 kg) shooting guard, Grayer starred at Iowa State University 1985-1988 where he set (and still holds) the all-time career scoring record, with 2,502 points.[1] He was named 3-time all-Big Eight and All-American in 1988. Grayer was a member of the United States 1988 Olympic basketball team and was drafted by the Milwaukee Bucks in the first round (13th pick overall) of the 1988 NBA Draft. The NBA journeyman played nine years in the league for five different teams.

In April 2010, Grayer was hired as an assistant men's basketball coach at Iowa State.[1] In August 2010, Grayer left the program and returned to his home state of Michigan. Grayer was originally hired by Greg McDermott, but new coach Fred Hoiberg retained him as Director of Basketball operations rather than an assistant coach. Grayer left shortly after, citing a desire to be a coach as his reason for leaving.[2]
