Alabama hires 1st black basketball coach Anthony Grant.

I remember the fan fare when Kentucky hired Tubby Smith as head coach. Is this Déjà vu again for another 1st black bball coach in the SEC????? Coach Grant’s former team, VCU, was best known for their upset of Duke in the 2007 tournament. His conference record was 45-9 with an overall 76-25 record. Apparently Vanderbilt, Auburn, South Carolina and Florida are still the only hold outs when it comes to hiring black basketball coaches. I’m glad to see a qualified candidate get a shot. I just hope that Alabama is fair with the dude.
