Report: Alabama Offers Anthony Grant

Anthony Grant has been offered the basketball head coaching position at the University of Alabama, The Birmingham News reported yesterday. Georgia is also interested in Grant, but has yet to interview him.

On Monday it was reported that Georgia had offered Anthony Grant twice. That report, from, turned out to be false. As of today, the Bulldogs have apparently not interviewed anyone for their head coaching position. With the aid of Parker Executive Search, Georgia is keeping their search close to the vest and not releasing any information.

There are a few teams playing in the NCAA Tournament this weekend with head coaches that UGA covets, such as Jeff Capel (Oklahoma), Sean Miller (Xavier) and Mike Anderson (Missouri). It seems that Georgia will wait to interview some or all of these candidates before moving on to a Plan B option such as Anthony Grant or Brad Stevens.

I don’t think Georgia should jump the gun and offer Grant just because Alabama has. If the Bulldogs think they can reel in a bigger fish, and they are aiming to, then they should hold firm and interview Grant later if he is still available. What happens if Anthony Grant accepts the Alabama job? At this point, if Grant accepts without waiting for Georgia or other schools, then so be it.
