Alabama Basketball: Talking to VCU's Grant About Coaching Vacancy

Chris BrooksCorrespondent IMarch 24, 2009

It has not even been one week since the VCU Rams lost by a single point to the UCLA Bruins in Philadelphia, but the Alabama Crimson Tide are wasting no time in attempting to get Anthony Grant as their next head coach.

The Richmond Times-Dispatch, which covers the Rams during the basketball season, reported this morning that Alabama was granted permission by VCU to talk to Grant about their vacant position.

Grant led the Rams to three consecutive CAA regular-season titles and two conference tournament titles. The Rams have been in postseason play all three years Grant has been at the helm.

It is rumored Georgia is next in line, but Grant could be SEC-bound before a champion is crowned in the NCAA Tournament. If this is true, VCU is in trouble.

Eric Maynor is leaving, Grant is out, and Larry Sanders may make a move early (highly doubtful, but it is out there.)

This is huge for VCU and the CAA. If he does leave, who do you get to replace him?
