Terrance Gant is the assistant varsity football coach and defensive coordinator at Tempe high school in Tempe, Arizona. He also doubles as the Head Strength and Conditioning coach for some of the sports programs. Terrance got his start in the sports performance community when as an active duty Marine he started CrossFit training.

Upon release from active duty in 2010, Terrance was looking for working in the field of his first love, football. While looking for a coaching position he was asked by a former high school teammate to run strength and conditioning camp for his team. After seeing the results, the school asked him to come on staff as the strength coach. The next season Terrance was hired as the defensive coordinator for the varsity football staff.
