Battle says Grant is returning for another season


   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.
