VCU Wasting No Time on Finding Grant’s Replacement

Via Foxsports.com…

VCU athletic director Norwood Teague hasn’t wasted any time targeting candidates in replacing Anthony Grant.

Just hours after finding out that Grant was leaving for Alabama after three seasons and a pair of NCAA tournament appearances, Teague jumped on a plane and headed to interview one of the nation’s elite assistant coaches – Texas’ Russell Springmann.

Springmann, 39, is the guy who helped get Kevin Durant, D.J. Augustin and Damion James to Austin. According to sources, Teague will interview Springmann – a Maryland native – and also Florida assistant coach Shaka Smart on Saturday.

    I’m liking Springman. He’s got ties to PG County here in MD and that’s a basketball hotbed. Durant, Beasley, Ty Lawson, Sam Young, Roy Hibbert were all recruited out of PG County. Downside though, the AAU leagues rule all there, so you’d have to deal with them to get these recruits. Larranga has recruits in this area too.

    Well put. Well see what happens, wouldn’t mind him I’d the assistant at Kansas.

    What about Pujol? He knows the players and would probably stick with Grant’s up tempo style.
