RICHMOND, Va. (AP) -Virginia Commonwealth and men's basketball coach Anthony Grant have agreed in principle to a contract extension and raise to keep him at the school through the 2013-14 season.
``Coach Grant has had a significant positive impact on the entire university, not just athletics,'' VCU President Eugene Trani said Thursday. ``We have tremendous confidence in what he will be able to do going forward.''
Grant has guided VCU to a 52-15 overall record and two Colonial Athletic Association regular-season titles in his two years. The Rams beat Duke and advanced to the second round of the NCAA tournament in Grant's first season, but lost in the CAA semifinals this year and were eliminated in their opening game of the National Invitation Tournament.
Terms of the contract were not released.
