The hiring of a new basketball coach may be sooner than expected, Anthony Grant spent 10 years at Florida and is currently at Virginia Commonwealth. He saw his team knocked out of the NCAA tournament Thursday evening by UCLA and will now field offers from UGA, Alabama, Virginia and maybe even Kentucky.
