Just hours after his mentor, Billy Donovan, released a statement claiming his loyalty to the Florida Gators, VCU coach Anthony Grant accepted the job at Alabama.
Grant took VCU to two NCAA tournaments in three years. His team was 24-10 this past season.
Grant takes over for Mark Gottfried who was fired mid-season.
According to sources, Alabama offered Grant a deal that was worth about $2 million per season.
