Former VCU coach Anthony Grant has agreed to become the new head coach of the Dayton Flyers.

Discuss.

Damn, I wanted Grant to come to GW. Guess we didn't act fast enough.

Nice hire by Dayton.  Dayton graduate and an excellent head coach.  Very good recruiter as well.

Great for the conference to have him as a coach. While I always want our A10 opponents to lose to us, it will be better for GW if we have multiple strong programs consistently fighting for NCAA births. It makes our resume look better and A10 teams winning in the NCAA Tournament means more money for the conference and GW.

As is Jackie Kennedy, ziik.  But I believe Jay North may still be alive.

Ms. Bouvier was all hoops.... she would have been a great HC!

Jesus, LSF. I was going to throw her in, too.

I never liked Jay. Thought he was a phoney. I never liked the guy who replaced Lassie's pet boy, either.
