   Alabama Athletic Director Bill Battle blogged that men’s basketball coach Anthony Grant’s job is safe, for at least another season.

   The announcement comes a day after the Tide were eliminated from the SEC tournament by LSU.

   Auburn was quick to make a coaching change, shortly after their loss, but Battle continues to support his coach.

   There is reason to believe that much of that decision is based on the buy-out that Grant would command if he was cut, but that doesn’t appear to be a factor at this point.
