VCU’s coach Anthony Grant landed in Tuscaloosa, Alabama [home of the Crimson Tide] this morning around 10 a.m. CT and is being formally interview for the job there.
Grant, of course, is a former Billy Donovan [Florida] assistant. He’s a good coach, but I’m not sold on his readiness for an SEC, or a BCS for that matter, position. He has done well at VCU, but BCS leagues are a completely different animal all together. His ties to the SEC and its recruiting bases will help, so we shall see if he can make the grade in Tuscaloosa - assuming he is hired.
