The coaching dominoes around the country are continuing to fall, and former Alabama coach Anthony Grant could be making a move soon — to his alma mater.
According to ESPN’s Jeff Goodman, who cites sources, Grant is one of the candidates to fill the Dayton head basketball gig vacated by Archie Miller, who will take over at Indiana.
He’s also reportedly up for the job with a former Crimson Tide assistant of his, Northern Kentucky head coach John Brannen.

Grant coached at Alabama from 2009-15 before getting fired and joining the Oklahoma City Thunder coaching staff as an assistant.
Grant was 117-85 in Tuscaloosa and reached the NCAA Tournament once. Previously, he was the head coach at Virginia Commonwealth. Brannen was with Grant for the entirety of both of his head coaching stops, and was interim head coach after Grant was fired at Alabama. Brannen played at Marshall.
Miller led Dayton to a 24-8 record this season, reaching the tourney for the fourth straight year.
Goodman reported that other candidates for the Dayton job include assistant coach Tom Ostrom and recently fired Illinois coach John Groce. Goodman also said there could be “one or two more.”
