Alabama announced Sunday that head basketball coach Anthony Grant has been fired, according to ESPN.

After getting off to a 12-3 start this season, Alabama struggled over the final two months of the season, finishing 18-14 overall and tied for eighth in the SEC.

"In this business we are ultimately judged by wins and losses on the court and, for a variety of reasons, we haven't made satisfactory progress in that area," Alabama athletic director Bill Battle said in a statement. "We have a great university, and an excellent athletics program that has expectations for all of our teams to meet the highest standards in competition, in the classroom and in the community.

"Today's decision is part of a larger evaluation of every facet of our basketball program that is intended to improve every aspect of our basketball program. A key component in that effort is to get all of our fans pulling in the same direction, and to make Coleman Coliseum the best home court advantage in the SEC."
Grant has been Alabama's coach for the last six years. Prior to his time in Tuscaloosa, Grant was at VCU, where he went 76-25 and made two NCAA tournament appearances.

If Musselman decides to take the USD head coaching job, should Jones offer Grant to come to LSU? I believe Grant is a good coach.

Come back to Florida as an assistant, Grant! Your basketball family is here and Billy would love to help you resurrect your career.
