Grant officially accepts Alabama job…

Kurt Wirth@Kurt_WirthCorrespondent IMarch 28, 2009

Anthony Grant, former coach of VCU, has accepted an offer to coach Alabama and will be coaching the Crimson Tide in 2009-10.

This seems to be a decent hire, although I’m just not sold on Grant. Grant served as an assistant under Biilly Donovan at Florida before accepting the head job at VCU.

Grant has improved the situation at VCU, but there’s just not enough evidence for me to be comfortable believing he is an SEC-caliber coach. The future shall ease my concerns, one way or another.

His numbers are certainly impressive, that’s for sure. He is 76-25 as a head coach, and 45-9 in the Colonial Athletic Association. None of his teams have made it out of the second round of the NCAA Tournament.
