I've commented on this before... I still think it is probably in everyone's best interest something happens.
By the time UNLV announced a two-year contract extension for Rice on
Saturday night, by the time it looked like a successfully executed
leverage move, Harlan already had long turned his attention to other
Potential USF targets include Massachusetts coach Derek
Kellogg, New Mexico coach Craig Neal, Kentucky assistant Orlando
Antigua, Florida assistant John Pelphrey and Florida State assistant
Another name to consider is Alabama’s Anthony Grant, who once
was a key member of Billy Donovan’s Gators staff and interviewed for the
USF job in 2003. Grant has head-coaching experience at VCU, where he
defeated Duke in a 2007 NCAA tournament game, and Alabama, where he has
gone 99-71 in five seasons.
But this season, the Crimson Tide slipped to 13-19 – the most
defeats by an Alabama basketball team in 45 years – and AD Bill Battle
felt compelled to give Grant a written vote of confidence. Grant, who
was Jeremy Foley’s choice as UF replacement in 2007 when Donovan flirted
with the NBA’s Orlando Magic, makes $1.9-million per season.
