 TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) -Anthony Grant has been hired as Alabama's coach after three successful years with Virginia Commonwealth.
Alabama athletic director Mal Moore told The Associated Press on Friday evening that a deal had been reached. A formal agreement is expected to be signed later in the night.
The 42-year-old Grant, a former Florida assistant, led VCU to two NCAA tournaments in three seasons. Moore said Grant had already informed his team and VCU officials of his decision.
The hiring was first reported by The Birmingham News and Richmond Times-Dispatch.
Moore and executive athletic director Dave Hart interviewed Grant in Richmond last weekend. He spent Wednesday touring Alabama's campus and meeting with other university officials.
